Black Forest Cake

I haven’t made this one in a while, but my older brother is a big fan of cherry pie filling. You can use mixes and canned items to assemble this cake, and it will still be delicious.

If you’re making this gluten free, make sure to use a good gluten free chocolate cake mix.

Black Forest Cake

  • Servings: 12
  • Difficulty: medium
  • Print

Use mixes and canned items to make it easier.


  • 1 Devil’s Food Cake, prepared in round pans (or gluten free cake)
  • 1 pkg. Cool Whip or prepared whipped cream
  • 1 can Chocolate Frosting
  • 1 large can Cherry Pie Filling


After baking and cooling the cake, start assembling on a platter. On first layer of cake, pipe a ring of chocolate icing around the edge to prevent pie filling from leaking out. Then spread pie filling in the middle. Place next layer of cake on top. Frost sides and part of top with frosting. Pipe whipped cream around the edge, then fill the center with pie filling.
