For the final bake, we are finishing with a true showstopper by Lazy Cat Kitchen! In total, it takes over 2 hours to make and the cream must be made the night before. This pretty black forest cake is more challenging but definitely worth it. It can be stored for up to 4 days, if it will last that long!
