This is a delicious dessert, and serves a crowd! I made mine in a huge lasagna dish ( 18L X 12W X 3.25H) and it just did fit. I baked an angel food cake to use, as the price difference between the mix and one from the bakery was small; I'm not sure how big a baked angel cake is....There were no 12 oz. whipped topping, so I got and used 2 8 oz., as my dish had a bigger surface area to cover, on top. Everyone loved it, and I can't wait to make it again! Thanks so much for sharing, mary winecoff. This one is going in my keeper file!

Very good and easy to make with cans of cherry pie filling. I am sure any flavor pie filling could be used instead.
