How to Make Cherry Cream Cheese Delight Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare white cake mix as directed on box.
  2. Bake in 2 greased cake pans (8 inch or 9 inch pans).
  3. Let cakes cool
  4. Prepare frosting by mixing softened cream cheese, defrosted cool whip and vanilla extract with hand mixer until blended and smooth.
  5. Place 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.
  6. Begin 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)
  7. Once the top of the cake is covered in cherries, add cherry pie filling syrup/jell to the edges of cake and allow to drip down the sides of cake.
  8. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours before serving
