    Sometimes one has to desert in order to enjoy a dessert.

    I very much love black forest cake.
    Dark chocolate is my favorite.

    In the UK it is known as Black Forest gâteau
    which always struck me as schizophrenic.

    Do you have a German version of the Polish Makowiec cake?

    For those who are unfamiliar it looks like a swiss roll but not with sponge which has a black filling made from poppy seeds.

    That sounds intriguingly delicious.

    My family in Nagasaki sometimes send us castella sponge cake. Can't even begin to describe how good it tastes.

    Are you at least now fluent in Japanese? (Didn't get the pop-ups myself).
