We loved this cake! It was moist and the three separate flavors were very special. I changed the recipe a little. I didin't want to use food colors, so in the first bowl, I just added chopped pistachios instead of walnuts. It gave it a slight green color. In the cherries layer, I also omitted the red coloring, but the cherries gave it a slight tint. I used a bundt pan, and placed the cherry layer in first, then the chocolate, then the pistachio. (Make sure the pistachio layer has a little bit more batter to cover a larger area.) It came out very pretty. I served it with neopolitan ice cream. Thank you, keen5, for a nice recipe.
