  • 1 can cherry pie filling


1) Bake pies according to instructions and cool to room temperature overnight.

2) Prepare and each box of cake mix according to instructions.

3) Mix each box separately as each layer will require one box of mixed cake batter.

4) For each cake layer pour 1/2 of the batter in the cake pan.

5) Carefully de-tin the baked pie and place it face up on top of the batter in the cake pan. Pour the second half of the batter on top to cover the pie entirely.
