Cherry Pie Cake

I've done posts before as a part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker ( program and I’m pleased to announce that I was given the opportunity to try out both Duncan Hines ® and Comstock-Wilderness Fruit Fillings and create something that was yummy and delicious.  My original idea was going to be a trifle that I planned to serve for dessert for my son’s birthday, and then I got a wild idea and came up with this.  Which we enjoyed this evening with my in-laws for his birthday.

Cherry Pie Cake
1 box of Duncan Hines ® French Vanilla Cake Mix and the ingredients to make the cake
1 can of Wilderness Country Cherry Pie Filling
Butter cream frosting

Prepare the cake according to the directions on the box. Bake in a 10 inch round cake pan that you have sprayed with a cooking spray with flour. Bake the cake for 40 minutes. Remove from the oven, and remove the cake from the pan and cool. Once the cake is cool, spread buttercream frosting on the sides of the cake and on the very edge of the top creating a ridge. Spread the entire can of cherries on top of the cake taking the pie filling up to the buttercream ridge.  Using the buttercream frosting make “lattice” lines with frosting across the top and detail the edge to look like a pie.

~ Enjoy! ~

What's left after the first round...two more pieces got eaten, but I'm not pointing any fingers.
As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I received a coupon for a free Duncah Hines (R) Product and a free Can of Constock-Wildreness Fruit. The opinions & views expressed above are my own, and I thoroughly enjoyed my experience!
