Delicious! I hosted a party for a women's league and used a German theme. I chose this recipe because it was EASY and used things I had on hand. My daughter was very disappointed to find none left when she got home, so I made another the next day. I sprinkled the top with cocoa powder. It was very pretty. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.

This was sooo easy to make and very tasty. The only thing I did not like was the thickness of the cake. Next time, I will probably make two layers out of it, double the cherry filling and spread it between the layers and also on the top. Thanks for sharing :-)

This was absolutely delicious! And extrememly easy and quick to put together. The only thing I wasn't sure about was when to put the topping on. It says to put the cherry filling on while warm but I wasn't sure about the pudding. I waited until the cake had cooled to put the pudding on and it turned out great! I took it to my inlaws for a family dinner. Everybody raved over it. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law were groaning because they were so full while heading for seconds of the cake. My husband raved all the way home. Great recipe Karen. Thank you!

Great except topping was runny. Next time I will put pudding mix in the cool whip without milk.

I have made this as written and also played around with it a few times - making it a poke cake with a box of chocolate pudding once, and keeping the vanilla pudding and Cool Whip as separate layers the other time. Delicious all three ways, and everyone I give the recipe to is surprised at how easy it is. Great, great recipe!

I made this for my man for his birthday last year and it was a huge hit. I had forgotten all about it when I decided this will be the perfect thing to bring to our church picnic. I will also be making one for the Mr. as he does not share well ;)
This is one super great recipe!!!

We had a guest bring this for a bridal shower several months ago, and my husband loved it, so of course I had to get the recipe from the lady that brought it. I have since made it, too. This is SO easy and quick to make, serves a bunch of people, and tastes really good. It's a great thing to make if you are a new baker, too, because it looks like you spent a lot of time making it. This is a great recipe.
