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.

This class is being offered virtually.

Learn 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. 

* Please note, to make the Black Forest Torte, you’ll need a stand mixer with a whip attachment or a hand-held mixer.

My Weigh Kitchen Scale

$60.00

A scale is the perfect way to take the guesswork out of your measuring, but not all scales are created equal. The My Weigh KD-8000 is one of our favorites, and it's the same version of the scale our instructors use during BAKE! Classes. We like it because it weighs accurately down to 1 gram/0.05 oz, which means even small measurements will be precise. It also has a Baker's Math function that lets you calculate percentages of other ingredients in a recipe based on the total weight of your flour—a great way to figure out your dough's hydration, or to scale a recipe up or down!

The scale is battery-powered (but comes with an AC adapter if you'd rather have it plugged in) and has a weight capacity of up to 8000 grams/17.62 lb. It features a backlit LCD readout with a protective cover, and a removable platform for easy cleaning. Shipping is included in the price.
