No, that's a version of the Black Forest Cake.
It's a beautiful picture and, I'd bet, quite tasty, but I protest all "naked" cakes (so named as they don't ice the outside of the cake the way traditional layer cakes do - very trendy over the past few years).

I don't ask for or expect much from life anymore - as Springsteen said, I've ended up like a dog that's been beat to much - but I draw the line at "them" taking away the icing on my layer cakes.

What's your favorite cake, Fading?
It's like asking a parent which of their children they love the most.

Okay, kidding aside, I don't really know as I like so many cakes. But I will say this, I am not ashamed of my love of big, heavily iced layer cakes.

But I like bundt, coffee and other cakes as well.

Here's one of the least-well-known cakes I love:

Bienenstich or Bee sting cake is a German dessert made of a sweet yeast dough with a baked-on topping of caramelized almonds and filled with a vanilla custard, Buttercream or cream.
