    This my family's most requested cake . I use more cool whip the extra creamy.

    Wonderful. I would change the frosting but still good. Super moist.

    I was a little skeptical of cooking with the brandy eventhough I knew it's just for cooking. I used cherry dessert syrup instead.Make sure that the cake cools before you put the cool Whip on it. I also put it in the refrigerator so that the cool whip would stick better. I used real cherries on top of the cake to prevent any kind of mess. The cake was outstanding! My three year old son loves it and I'm making it for Thanksgiving.
