This past Monday was Curt's birthday so that means one thing in this house .......Schwarzwälder Kirsch Tort, translastion Black Forest Cake ....... 3 layers of uber yummy moist chocolate cake, 1 layer of chocolate mousse and one layer of cherry liquor cherries and fresh whip cream on the top. This is a family recipe that has been made for his birthday since he was 2. Needless to say there is always pressure to make this cake for him especially when Opa is over ........ he has been eating it for 80 years. In his thick German accent he tells me I have it right every time so that is a good thing..... Opa holds nothing back!!!
I made Curt a card starring his favorite pass time ....... sailing. I used Men of Life on this card and then Pharmacy font for the sentiment on the inside.
Here are the photos of the card, the cake and Emma assisting.
