      This is so EASY and so GOOD! I will definitely make this again! I made it in my largest rectangular glass pan so we could see the layers when it was finished. I didn't have any almond extract so I omitted it. My kids wanted a chocolate topping, so I substituted chocolate pudding + 1 heaping tbsp cocoa for the vanilla pudding. The combo of dark chocolate, cherries and a light creamy topping is just irrestible. Everyone had seconds...

      This cake is very good, however the Pudding mixture for the topping is very runny and didn't make for a good cake. It ran all over the place. Next time I make it, it will just be with the cool whip with the vanilla extract. Instead of chocolate sprinkles, I shaved bittersweet chocolate on the top.
