1/4 Cup.Of cherry liqueur.

A can.Of pitted black cherries; drain them well.

A 250 grams pkg.Of cream cheese: softened to room temp.

Cold whipping cream; I used a 430 ml cartoon.

11/2 Tsp.Of vanilla extract.

For decorating I used; maraschino cherries and chocolate shavings.


1st Step

Bake the cake according to the instructions for two rounds measuring 9 inches. Cool to room temperature. If you want your cake to have a smooth surface, you may need to trim the cake domes.

2nd Step

As you’re putting the cake together, use a pastry brush to lightly coat each layer with cherry liqueur.

3rd Step

Mix the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract together with an electric mixer until completely smooth. And then gradually add half of the whipped cream while continuing to whisk it for about a minute, or until it just begins to thicken.

4th Step

Continue whipping until stiff peaks form, then add the remaining whipping cream.

5th Step

On one of the cakes, spread approximately one-fourth of the whipped cream in an even layer. Place the cherries on top, then use the back of a spoon to pour another quarter of the whipped cream over the cherries.

6th Step

Place the second cake on top of the first cake in a careful manner, then cover it with the remaining whipped cream. If you want to decorate it, you may use chocolate sprinkles or curls.
