So it was my birthday this past week and this is the cake that I usually request for my birthday:
Easy Black Forest Cake
1 Devil’s Food cake mix (I used 15.25 ounces Betty Crocker cake mix)
1 1/4 cups water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 container (8 oz) Cool Whip
Prepare cake as directed on box. Bake in two 8″ or 9″ pans (whatever you have . . . mine are 9″). Let cool completely.
Mix together cream cheese, powdered sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla until smooth. Fold in Cool Whip. Divide evenly and spread half over each cake.
Then top with cherry pie filling. Refrigerate until serving. This is perfect for a summer BBQ or potluck! And the best part is that it makes 2 cakes!
-Your favorite pie filling (I just buy the biggest can of cherry pie filling that I can find and it will usually cover both cakes). I love it with cherry, but my husband and sisters love strawberries (hence the different toppings in the pictures!). Really, any kind of fruit filling would be excellent on here. When we use strawberries, we usually just buy fresh strawberries at the store and then by a box of “Danish Dessert” glaze and mix the strawberries in that . . . it’s delicious.
