Black Forest Torte

A slice of Black Forest Torte on its side sits on a white plate in front of the remainder of the cake.

In this hands-on class*, we'll teach you how to make this classic, decadent torte that you won't want to share! Chocolate sponge cake, layered with tart cherries and Kirsch whipped cream, and finished with toasted almonds—this cake has it all. We'll take you through all the steps of making a light and airy sponge cake and how to finish and decorate your masterpiece.

You'll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, and the 9-inch Black Forest Torte you made in class. 

We'll end the in-person class with a tasting and you'll go home with some great coupons.

* Please note, for the virtual class, you’ll need a stand mixer with a whip attachment or a hand-held mixer to make the torte.
