For good reason the Black Forest Gateau is always worth a sin. Of course, it is a must on every cake buffet in Badenweiler.

The Black Forest Gateau is a true piece of art. It is known worldwide but naturally tastes best where it comes from: here in our Black Forest. It is not quite clear where the name derived from. There are three theories about that. The first one says that the name comes from the black topping of chocolate shavings that reminds us of the dark Black Forest. The second one deduces the name from the Black Forest kirschwasser and the third one thinks that the name derived from its predecessor, the Swiss Black Forest Gateau. But everybody agrees that it is always worth a sin!
