This cake was a great surprise, for some reason I thought it would be really sweet but it turned out just right and it was so easy to make, my 9 year old son helped me. I forgot to buy whipped cream so I used vanilla hagen das instead it it was really Yummy. Thanks for a great new desert idea!

This recipe was so fun! My 6 and 9 year old daughters helped to make it and they couldn't wait until it was done to see how the cherries and marshmallows switched places. It was delicious, too. We ate it still warm...mmmmm! We'll make this often.

This is a fabulous cake! I used a yellow cake mix and it turned out fantastic. It made the whole house smell like cherries. The marshmallows made a sticky crunchy topping. My DH ate two huge pieces before it was even cool! Thanks for this great keeper!!
