4Prepare frosting by mixing softened cream cheese, defrosted cool whip and vanilla extract with hand mixer until blended and smooth.
5Place one completely cooled cake layer on a serving platter. Frost with about 3/4 cup frosting. Top with second cake layer. Frost top and sides of cake.
6Begin to place cherries on top of cake with a teaspoon one at a time starting in the center, (trying not to add too much of the cherry pie filling syrup or jell to avoid cherries sliding off)

8Refrigerate for 1-2 hours before serving
