To make this cake, start by making a dark chocolate cake. It needs to be 4 layers. Make sure the layers are cooled before assembling.


1/4 c. kirsch (cherry brandy)

1 can cherry pie filling

16 oz. heavy whipping cream

1/2 c. confectioners' sugar

dark chocolate shavings

Sprinkle the kirsch over the cooled cake layers. Beat together the whipping cream and sugar until it is stiff enough to hold it's shape. Spread some of the whipping cream on the first cake layer. Add the second cake layer. Pour half of the cherry pie filling on the second layer. Leave 1 inch of cake showing around the edge so it has room to spread. Add the third cake layer and cover it with more whipping cream. Add the fourth cake layer. Cover the entire cake with remaining whipping cream. Pour remaining cherry filling on top of cake. Gently press the chocolate shavings into the sides of the cake.
