Is Sara Lee's Black Forest Cake the best ready-made cake?

Is there anything more delicious than this:

Not sure we can get it in Denmark. But I enjoyed it back in Tokyo. There was an American grocery store in Copenhagen before, but it closed when the owner died. The owner was the gospel singer Etta Cameron.

Never had it, but in that picture it looks a bit dry. I'd prefer a fresh, home-made one.
Bugger off.

Unless someone else is making it, ready-made for me.

I haven't seen any in Toronto. Sara Lee doesn't have much of a market here or at least in the supermarkets that I frequent. Growing up, my parents usually kept a Sara Lee Coffee Cake and/or a Sara Lee Cheesecake in the freezer in case unexpected company dropped by. I haven't seen their coffee cakes or cheese cakes for a long time but it could just be my area.

Better even than a Cookie Puss ice cream cake from Carvel?

Totally with you. The main good thing about them was their immediate readiness. Pepperidge Farms was another with usually simpler concoctions like basic chocolate cake with chocolate icing. Plain, dry and very sweet. As far as I know, they have disappeared from Montreal shelves as well, although I haven't looked for any for decades now.
