  • Place cakes, top sides up, in clean 9-inch round pans; pierce with large fork at 1/2-inch intervals.
  • Add boiling water to jelly powders in medium bowl; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Pour slowly over cakes. Refrigerate 3 hours.
  • Dip bottoms of pans in warm water 10 sec.; remove cakes from pans. Spoon frosting into medium bowl. Add Cool Whip; whisk until blended. Stack cakes on plate, filling and frosting layers with Cool Whip mixture. Top with cherries just before serving.

Special Extra

Serve with colourful fresh berries, such as blueberries, strawberries and raspberries.

Freeze Cake Layers for Summer Desserts

Beat the heat before hot summer weather arrives by baking several sponge or layer cakes while the days are still cool. Place the baked, unfrosted cakes in freezer-weight resealable plastic bags and freeze up to 3 months. When ready to use, remove cakes from bag and let stand at room temperature 1 to 2 hours before using as desired.

How to Store

Keep frosted cake refrigerated.
