Legend of the Black Forest Cake

The unpredictable journey of the black forest cake begins with a legend in ancient Rome.  Legend has it that three Roman legions were ambushed by an alliance of Germanic tribes led by Arminius in the Black Forest region during the reign of the first Roman Emperor, Augustus.

Roman General and Politician Publius Quinctilius Varus took his own life while bravely fighting off the Germanic tribes, during the infamous Battle of the Teoutoburg Forest, also known as “The Black Forest”.  It is from this same “Black Forest” region that the black forest cake originated.  Rumor has it that the first black forest cake emerged from this region of Southern Germany in the late 16th century.  During this time, first began mixing chocolate into cakes. and other baked goods.
