Schwarzwälder-Kirsch

Do you know the most popular German cream cake? It’s Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte. And what makes it special is the « Schuss » – a shot of Black Forest cherry flavored spirit (42% alcohol). We feel fashion stories often lack this « Schuss », that certain something. Well, here is our version of cake fashion, seductive shapes which add the cherry on the, yes, cake. Tomorrow we will share the original recipe of the Kirschtorte as the chefs at the Hotel Schlehdorn in Altglashütten make it. The hotel also served as location for our shoot.
