  • Chocolate sponge batter
  • Macerated cherries
  • Vanilla Chantilly cream
  • Chocolate decor

The Black Forest cake is known for the combination of the whipped cream, chocolate sponge and kirschwasser macerated cherries.  Apart from the classic version, we will make a modern one, the author’s version of the cake from brand chef KIСA Aleksandr Trofimenkov. We will keep the idea and the taste but will make the design more up-to-date. The Chantilly cream contains not only cream but also sour cream. It brings depth to the flavor and gives a nice sour touch. The perfect combination of rich cherry taste, pleasant vanilla Chantilly and a soft velvet chocolate sponge create that very special pleasure that makes this cake so popular for so many years all over the world.

Alexandr Trofimenkov KICA brand-chef When Alexand Trofimenkov tell about theory of pastry is traditionally a moment of absolute silence in the classroom. He talks in simple language about the required percentage of solids in the product, about the role of eggs in baking. About types of sugar and their effect on the retention of water in a frozen product. About the properties of starch and xanthan gum in the preparation of texture berry coolies. According to our listeners, detailed and interesting explanations of theoretical questions by the chef allow them to look at the recipe deeply. They can realize the taste even before its preparation. From the very beginning, Alexandr sets high standards of work, at which, at the end of the lesson, the students come out with slender products that can decorate the windows of demanding pastry houses. 2 years of work as a pastry chef at a factory in the best confectionery in Kiev “Honey”, 2 years of teaching at a pastry school of Hector Bravo, opening and conducting the production of luxury confectionery in Dubai, many years of experience in teaching and work at this field give Alexander Trofimenkov an opportunity to share theory and practice with students at the level of world-famous pastry art.
