Black Forest Cake Redone - Project 52: Week 45

I had the opportunity to make a cake for my church's dessert auction this past weekend. I knew I wanted to make the Black Forest Cake I made for my daughter's second birthday because it looks impressive with those chocolate curls and cherries and because the Italian Meringue frosting is DELICIOUS. This time I added chocolate to the frosting (I went to the original source of the recipe, and it has a spot were I was able to make 2.5 times the recipe and it does all the math for me). This was enough frosting for four eight-inch layers of cakes (I ended up making two cakes since I had so much). Plus, there was lots of frosting left over. I think I would just double the recipe next time.
