Black Forest Cake by Fatboybakes

It was dad’s birthday and mum asked if we could order Fatboybakes’ Black Forest Cake for him. I quickly SMS-ed FBB and our conversation went like this:

Bangsar-bAbE: My mum saw my post on your lunch party, and she wants your Black Forest Cake for my dad’s birthday. Can?

FBB: Black Forest? Booze? Ya can…

Bangsar-bAbE: Yes & YES!! I collect this Sunday ya…

*Black Forest Cake is also known as Black Forest gateau (in UK).

The cake was a big hit with my family. Imagine…there were only 6 of us, and NO leftovers. My two sisters walloped the rest of the cake, leaving me with only a slice which I saved for Shum. The cake was booze-y…like all his other creations. A good thing, especially for alcoholics like me. Rich, liquored pure cream and whole black cherries were sandwiched between two layers of light chocolate sponge, and topped with a smooth chocolate ganache. Divine! You can order FBB’s cakes, pies, scones & etc here. So far, I’ve tried his Brandy Truffle Cake, Mango Cheesecake, Rum & Raisin Pie and Black Forest Cake. And I’m now lusting after his Spencer’s Four Seasons… *hint to rif*

    I’m reeling just from looking at the mysterious darkness and reading “Rich, liquored pure cream and whole black cherries…” They ought to make music out of food description like this! And what’s this Precious Pea’s comment about a chicken pie and bacon mushroom quiche??

    FBB´s cakes are legendary! Have you tried his Durian cheesecake? My god! Its really good! Too bad I can´t have them as often as I wish. Is this cake with Cherry Liquor? Coz the original here are with that and its really good.

  12. "Joe" who is constantly craving

    yeah its out for sale!

    after his boozy desserts..i can barely taste booze in desserts sold outside in restaurants!

  13. thule a.k.a leo

    I have yet to order one from him 🙂 but top on my list are Spencr’s Four Season and Mango Cheesecake (I’m a penchant for mango)!

    But I don’t have any moment worth celebrating right now 🙁

  14. Nic (KHKL)

    yupe, yupe. i highly recommend fbb’s spencer four season. really good stuff! even my 1 year one niece liked it! with alcohol somemore! haha!

    i tried the blackforest as well. really refined stuff!

  15. Bangsar-bAbE

    Nic – I can’t wait to try it then! I hope it’s as booze-y as this one! =D

    leo – His mango cheesecake is yummy, and not overly sweet. No need celebration also can eat cake ma… 😉

    Joe – Yes! I think his cakes spoilt me…

  16. Bangsar-bAbE

    Lianne – Not yet, I want to try his Durian Tiramisu too! =D I don't know if it's with cherry liquor, have to ask FBB that.

    I heard from my friend that the German version is really yummy! Too bad I didn't get to try it… =(

    550ml – His pies (both savoury and sweet) are delicious!! I couldn't stop eating his beef & mushroom pie the other day…

  17. Lianne

    yeah, its a bit different and i reckon its the cherry liquor that made a difference. My hubby made them once and the photo is still in my draft box! he had yet to get back to me on the recipe! keke

  18. Simon Seow

    FBB’s cake is a real treat. Slurp. I got to try his Durian cake on my birthday.

  19. Bangsar-bAbE

    Simon – A treat indeed! Rich and heavy on liquor….nom nom nom!!

    Lianne – I really envy those with hubbies who can cook! 😉

  20. fatboybakes

    hahah, glad you liked it.
    actually, i havent got a hard and fast recipe for this cake yet, and just go with my instincts. also, to answer lianne’s questions, no, its not kirsch or cherry brandy….its just normal brandy with the reserve syrup from the cherries la. very exp to use kirsch…unless we have a sponsor from europe who’d send us a shipment hor…..

  21. Bangsar-bAbE

    Brandy or kirsch…doesn’t matter to me. As long as it’s yummy! =D

  22. Isis Lee

    Hi Bangsar babe, would like to ask you is the FatBoyBake Black Forest Cake really that delicious? because am planning to order for my boyfriend’s birthday. Need yr review. Thanks

    1. Bangsar Babe

      Hi Isis,

      I haven’t had FBB’s black forest in the last 3 years. But when I used to have it, it was pretty good. He’s generous with the alcohol. 😉
