Black Forest Cake Charms by monsterkookies Black Forest Cake Charms by monsterkookies
So I tempted you all last night with the thoughts of black forest cake. I'm sure my description left you wanting some, but if you missed it than I must describe it again.

This cake is made up of three layers of decadent dark chocolate cake drizzled with kirsch - a cherry brandy. It is filled with layer upon layer of fresh cherries and whipped cream, and the sides are covered in chocolaty dark sprinkles. It is slathered in cherries and their sticky sweet sauce - half cherries, whole cherries, and their sweet and sour goodness.

Dainty whipped cream borders the sides and dollups on top are topped with whole maraschino cherries with their stems in tact.

Delicious!

I can't tell you how labour intensive it was. It took so long to get all those layers just right, and it required many baking intervals. Haha. I am VERY happy how they turned out, and I only have a very limited amount. So, I am putting one in my Etsy shop. There are five pieces total.

You can get it on a 20" leather cord with chain extension and charm or 30" silver plated ballchain or just as a charm with a small key ring-style jump ring.

This is just so beautiful..

What is the frosting? TLS with clay or paint? Or do you use something else?

Thanks very much! :D The frosting is a mixture of raw polymer clay (white) mixed with TLS and a touch of titanium white oil paint. :)

I think I have the front one! Yay!

One little suggestion - the stem has been poking me all day. LOL Maybe a tad shorter? :)

I love love love it though. I've gotten compliments all day.

Ohhhh noes. I am sorry. I like long stems! If you like, you can just give 'er a snip with the wire clippies. :)

Now this little thing is the craziest I've seen today! It looks so real!!! I see the photo and I think: "Wait, am I not browsing the Jewelry category?" I read your Artist's Comment and I go: "So I was right, it is a real cake. I guess not all this gallery's items are categorized Jewelry." I still doubt a little, though, and after I read about the cord, I'm just plain confused. I am only sure now, that it is a pendant, after I read "This pendant..." in the description over at Etsy's.

I'm new to your work. Made me laugh :heart:

Mmmm, I love to make cake! I went to cake decorating school for a little while, but never got into it on a professional level. Although I was always in charge of the cakes at the restaurant I apprenticed at. Are you a pastry chef?

That's really awesome - I'd love to go to a school devoted to cake decorating.
No - I worked as a cake decorator in an in-store bakery in a grocery store for a few years until it closed in September, not nearly as fancy - Basically making things like this, and those licensed children's birthday cakes. It was just a part time thing through highschool, haha.

It's really expensive to go to cake decorating school, here. They have basic classes for like $600 at the college here. But there is a cake decorating supplier that is also a school, and you can take basic classes for like $100! Which is excellent. :) When I was in highschool, I wanted to go work at our grocery store as a cake decorator but I didn't get an interview :(
