How do you make a good Black Forest Cake thats okay for kids?

I'm making this for a birthday and i dont want to include liquer so...


  1. it doesnt really matter cause its being cooked so the liquor evaporates
  2. I've never made a black forest cake with liquor....I always thought it was just a chocolate cake with cherries. But the person who already answered is with alcohol is usually fine for kids.
  3. Check out the "variation" version of this recipe: Lemon Pillow Cake 1 white cake mix 1 can lemon pie filling Mix cake as directed on box and pour into a 9x13 pan. Place spoonsful of lemon pie filling in blobs over batter. Bake as directed on the box. Let cool completely. Cake batter covers blobs, so there will be pockets of lemony filling inside. Frosting 1 can ready to spread lemon flavored frosting 1 tub of Cool Whip Mix frosting and Cool Whip together and spread on cake. This does need to be kept refrigerated. Variation: Use chocolate cake mix, cherry pie filling, and chocolate icing to make a Black Forest Pillow Cake.

  7. I used to order black forest cakes from a bakery that was famous for them. They always asked if I wanted it with or without kirsch. You can simply leave out the kirsch. It should be fine. Not quite as good, but the kids wouldn't like that flavor anyway.
  8. Just do a normal cake recipe and omit the alcohol. It should still taste fine. By the way, all of the alcohol does NOT evaporate! This was proved recently in a science experiment. In fact, a lot of it is retained in the cake or whatever recipe you're making. Fondue is another good example. White wine is often utilized in making the cheese fondue and most of the alcohol does stay behind.
  9. Make the cake, and don't let the alcohol bother you. It will evaporate. But serve the rich cake in small slices because it is high in sugar and fats.
