Naja, its kind of "trademark" of the Black Forest ...
But most Black Forestians hardly ever make this cake. Anyway for Christmas my mum made one for the first time in 20 years. The result can be seen below.
One piece of it has maybe more calories than a big bowl of salad ;)
Of course you should try it in Black Forest. For best quality head for small bakeries, not for big chains or supermarkets ...
I don't know if it is possible to see women in these clothes. But in the shops you can find lots of dolls in the traditional Black Forest clothes - especially the hats.
you will see these crucifixes. The region is rather traditional and religious. Some of these crucifixes are really beautiful
There are some places where the Schwarwaelder Kirschtorte is even better than good. I ate a very delicious one at Seibels Eck at the Schwarzwald Hochstrasse.
Who wouldn't fancy to have one of these at home???? You can get them anywhere around the black forest.
The locals know what good food is. Try the Black Forest gateau and you won't want it anywhere else! Maybe not WITH beer as here though :-)
