Vegan Black Forest Parfaits

Black forest cake, with its decadent layering of dense chocolate cake, cherries, cream, and a splash of cherry liqueur, is so rich it’s saved for the most celebratory of holidays. Originating in the Black Forest region of Germany, this traditional dessert is often served in four layers, topped with whipped cream, and covered in chocolate shavings. While the cake is straight out of a pastry fantasy-land, you can raise the level of elegance by serving it in individual glasses.
