Heaven On Earth Cake

For the cake:
1 box chocolate cake mix
1 can cherry pie filling
3 large eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon almond extract

For the frosting:
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the topping:
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
1/4 cup chocolate shavings (optional)

1- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×13-inch baking dish.

2- In a large mixing bowl, combine the chocolate cake mix, cherry pie filling, eggs, vegetable oil, and almond extract. Mix well until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.

3- Pour the cake batter into the prepared baking dish and spread it evenly.

4- Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

5- While the cake is baking, prepare the frosting. In a chilled mixing bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.

6- Once the cake has cooled completely, spread the whipped cream frosting over the top.

7- Sprinkle the toasted sliced almonds over the whipped cream frosting. You can also garnish with chocolate shavings for added decadence.

8- Chill the cake in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving to allow the flavors to meld together.
