Black Forest Cake with Strawberry Filling

Black Forest Cake is a German Dessert but have been in season for decades now. No matter what new taste comes and goes, black forest cake will always remain in there. I had made this for my husband's birthday last year. Even my mom, who usually don't like chocolates and chocolate cakes loved it - which means I can declare the cake as a hit :)
