Celebrate Black Forest Cake Day
Black Forest Ice Cream is a flavor that comes from it’s more famous counterpart, Black Forest Cake.
Black Forest Cake originated in Germany and is named not directly after the Black Forest mountain range in southwestern Germany, but rather from the specialty liquor of that region, known as Schwarzwälder Kirsch(wasser) which is distilled with tart cherries. This is the ingredient, with its distinctive cherry pit flavor and alcoholic content, that gives the cake its flavor.
Cherries, cream, and Kirschwasser were first combined in the form of a dessert in which cooked cherries were served with cream and Kirschwasser, while a cake combining cherries, cookies / biscuits and cream (but without Kirschwasser) probably originated in Germany.
Today, we can enjoy that delicious flavor in an ice cream, and there is no better day to do so than Nation Black Forest Cake Day on March 28th!
