Why These Flavors Work

This dessert is inspired by the Black Forest cake, a classic cake that combines the flavors of chocolate, cherries, and cream. Cherries and chocolate play off each other well, with the intense cherry notes enhanced by the dark chocolate. The cream component is a basic background flavor that helps smooth other flavors out.
