Hi anonymous.

Kirsch is a kind of cherry liquer and it's transparent... We normally use this liquer to make Blackforest.

Hi Aunty !
Thanks for reply , beside kirsch ,so what I can use for subtitute ? or don't put on it , does it effect to the taste of the cake ?
Thank you !

Hi anonymous,
it won't affect the taste if you omit kirsch. Cointreau or Grand Marnier liquer are orange liquer n I wonder if you can use it.
