Killarney Cherry Cake (irish)

Ingredients
  • 1-lb. 2 1/2 oz. pkg. chocolate fudge cake mix
  • 1/4 c. plus 3 T. creme de menthe or 1 1/2 t. peppermint flavoring
  • 1/2 c. chopped green Maraschino cherries (red work just as well)
  • 1 1/2 c. heavy cream
  • 2 T. confectioners sugar (powdered sugar)
  • 1/4 c. whole green (or red) Maraschino cherries
  • Chocolate curls
Instructions

Prepare cake according to package directions, substituting 1/4 c. creme de menthe for 1/4 c. water or adding 1 t. peppermint flavoring. Stir in chopped cherries; pour into two greased 9-inch layer pans. Bake as directed on package. Cool. Whip cream with remaining creme de menthe or 1/2 t. peppermint flavoring and confectioners sugar. Spread one-third of the whipped cream between cake layers. Heap remaining whipped cream on top. Arrange whole cherries and chocolate curls over whipped cream. Note: I prefer the peppermint flavoring in the cake mix. The cake tends to burn if I use the creme de menthe. If you want to save time, frost it with a tub of Cool Whip ( Regular or Extra Creamy, the Low-fat stuff doesn't hold up well) with either creme de menthe or peppermint flavoring in it.
