Black Forest Cake… and I’m not just talking food!

Easy & Elegant Black Forest Cake | www.somethingswanky.com

Oh you guys.

You have no idea how long this post has been in the making. Since July at the least. But really…. longer than that. Maybe you could say I’ve been working towards this since I first saw another blogger post about her Red Velvet Cake Carryall before I even started blogging. Because that’s when I knew that one day I’d be posting about my own Cake Carryall from Petunia Pickle Bottom.

And I knew that I’d have a gorgeous cake to go with it.

Laugh at me if you want, but y’all… today dreams are coming true!

This Black Forest Cake is delicious, elegant, and so simple to make. And I really am going to share the recipe with you today, I promise.

But we’re actually going to be talking about a different Black Forest Cake…

It’s delicious too, but in a different sort of way.

Easy & Elegant Black Forest Cake | www.somethingswanky.com

It’s delicious in a luxurious way.

It’s delicious in a way that only something really beautiful can be.

In way that you need it to be when you’re still wearing yesterday’s make up, have maple syrup on your jeans, and a 3-year insists on doing your hair before you make your 5th trip in a week to Wal-Mart for Clorox and Pull-Ups.

That’s right… This Black Forest Cake Cosmopolitan Carryall is designed specifically with the modern Mom in mind. And who could use a little luxury more than moms these days??

Petunia Pickle Bottom absolutely designs the best bags for sophisticated women on the go (er… or even women who would just like to have a little more sophistication in their maple-syrup-diaper-changing-dish-washing day). They are combining bold styles and textiles with everyday functionality and durability, and have reinvented the diaper bag to suit YOU.

Black Forest Cake Cosmo Carryall by Petunia Pickle Bottom #ppbss

I love these bags alone for their beauty and functionality. But here’s just another thing that makes Petunia Pickle Bottom bags so amazing: each bag is lovingly crafted from durable, easy-to-clean materials such as glazed canvas, chenille, or brocade. Because, no matter how beautiful our bags are… they’re still going to end up on changing tables, by the sandbox, and (heaven forbid) touching the floor of a public restroom.

Dainty materials just won’t do!

The Cake Line is an ultra-luxurious collection from Petunia Pickle Bottom that I’ve had my eye on for quite a while. And I decided that I love the Black Forest Cake colors the very best. But these other two are gorgeous as well…

And here’s the recipe for the actual Black Forest Cake…

Black Forest Cake

Yield: 8 large servings


  • 1 Recipe My Favorite Chocolate Cake baked in two 9-inch rounds and cooled completely
  • 21 ounces Lucky Leaf Premium Pie Filling, Cherry
  • 16 ounces chocolate canned frosting, Hershey's Special Dark flavor
  • 8 ounces Cool Whip
  • Optional: chocolate shavings for garnish


  1. Place one round layer of cake on the serving platter (this won't be easy to transfer once assembled, so build on the plate you're serving it on).
  2. Microwave the canned frosting for about 30 seconds, until slightly melted. Pour about half of the frosting on the first layer of cake, and spread evenly.
  3. Spoon about half of the cherry filling on top of the chocolate frosting.
  4. Place the second layer of cake over the cherries.
  5. Pour another layer of chocolate frosting over the second layer of cake (I didn't quite use the entire can).
  6. Spoon the remaining cherries over the frosting.
  7. Spread the cool whip over the cherries (I used all of it, because I'm a Cool Whip fiend).
  8. Garnish with chocolate sprinkles, shavings, or even chocolate chips (minis would be pretty!).


Keep chilled until ready to serve.

  292. I love the Black Forest Bag, and the Cake looks great too!

  293. Wow! The cake looks amazing! I’m thinking about making this one for er… five years now. The firts attemt (and the last so far) was completely disaster. And worse, it was ment as a centerpiece for my Grandma’s 85th birthday… But your recipe looks great, maybe I’ll give it a try :)

    And the bags? Amazing, too! I love the black and grey one on the right. I am a black’n’black person most of the time so this one is just for me :)

  294. I love BFC, and your recipe is amazing. I did, make one tweak, hope you don’t mind if I share: I made the cake as a poke-cake using cherry jello. It was to die for. The warming up of the frosting (to pour) is excellent. Thank you for this recipe –

    • Yum! I totally almost made this a poke cake (but still using the pie filling), but opted for the more traditional look in the end :)
