This cake martini is all about the chocolate and the cherries, just like Black Forest Cake. I happen to adore both chocolate and cherries and one of my favorite cakes is Black Forest so this martini is a labor of love.
I used crumbs from a chocolate cupcake to rim my glass and it was fun but you can also use some finely shaved dark chocolate if you don't happen to have a chocolate cupcake around.
I happened to have a few cupcakes so I mixed up a little extra of the martini, poked some holes in the cupcake and slowly poured some Black Forest Cake Martini onto my plain, dry little chocolate cupcake then pumped a little cherry pie filling in the center of the cupcake and frosted it with a dark chocolate ganache, topping it off with a Maraschino cherry. It rocked and now I have a great little cupcake recipe as well as a great cake martini recipe!
