I'm looking for a recipe for black forest cake, that's vegan friendly. It's my grandmother's 70th birthday over the weekend and we're having a family dinner, lol. My mum was going to order one from the patisserie, but I offered to make one.. Catch is, I don't have a recipe, and many that I've come across seem really.. odd. Does anyone have any tried and tested recipes for it? Or at least one that makes sense? :O

I rarely cook anything off a vegan recipe. I just look for in this instance "black forest cake" and subsitute all the ingredients to make it vegan.
You'll probably find a recipe much easier this way.

This chocolate cake recipe is awesome!

Then you could just use soyatoo whipping cream instead of normal cream? Or you could make a mock cream using nuttelex, icing sugar, vanilla and a little milk.
Similar to this:

And of course the cherries are already vegan wink
