Black Forest Cake
i recently started a thread about cake and someone actually recommended the black forest cake from st phillips in woodbridge: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7618... perhaps give that a shot?
i've personally never had that particular cake from st phillips before but i've had several cakes from them and they have always been satisfying (particularly the chocolate raspberry one, and the strawberry shortcake). if you go, be sure to also grab a cannoli or two....
I used to get the kind that was like the German Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte from Gerhardt on Ellesmere/Belamy. Real chocolate & whipped cream. They did not keep.
My last visit though in 2009 - it looked like the place had changed hands.
I don't fancy the kind that lasts for days in the grocery store coolers for days.
It's hard to find a really great one, but I buy Black Forest cakes from Sun Valley on Danforth Ave. They sell the ones from Pauline's Pastries. The last time I bought a few was in December, and they were fine, nothing was left 30 minutes later. http://www.paulinespastries.com
