Is there anything better than a Forêt-Noire? Yes there is: a double chocolate Black Forest cake. Composition and assembly are quite the same. Only the layers of cream have been replaced with hazelnut-chocolate cream for extra indulgence. Here we applied a ready-to-use Creme dell'Artigiano chocolate cream mixed with some hazelnut praline - but you could replace it with a homemade chocolate pastry cream or ganache. Raspberry marmalade adds a bit of sweet and sourness.
