Killarney Cherry Cake (Irish)

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

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.
