Cherry Pastry Cake

This Cherry Pastry Cake recipe is pastry filled with cherries, with homemade cream.

Puff pastry is great to use for desserts, just like our Berry Cheesecake Puff Pastry Tart and our Berries and Cream Wreath.

This cake is also called дрова под снегом if I am not mistaken. This cake is absolutely fantastic. I love just about anything with pasty sheets. Here the combination of the pastry sheets, the cherries and cream just make the cake addictive and hard to stop yourself. It’s also a great bonus that there is no need to make the pastry sheets (well that is unless you would like to)… Store purchased will work amazing. 🙂 This cake takes some time but it will be totally worth it!

Ingredients

Cake-

  • 3 Puff Pastry sheets
  • 2 cans cherry pie filling (21oz. each)

Cream-

  • 7 oz marshmallow puff
  • 2 Tbsp butter, room temp
  • 1/3 cup condensed milk
  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temp
  • 8 oz cool whip, thawed
  • Chocolate shavings for décor

Instructions

  • Cover baking sheet with parchments paper. Preheat oven to 365°F.
  • Completely thaw the pastry sheets. Lightly flour your surface and roll out the sheet to about 11”x13”.
  • Cut pastry sheet into four even strips. Use about 2/3 of the can of cherries on each sheet. Try to add very little of the syrup from the can. If you add too much, it will be hard to close the seams and the syrup will come out during baking.
  • Place the cherries in the middle of the strips. Bring the edges together and with a fork close tightly. Gently transfer onto baking sheet.
  • Bake 25-35 minutes until sheets are very golden in color. DO NOT open oven during baking or else sheets with flatten and will not be fluffy.
  • Let cool completely before assembling.
  • In the meantime, prepare the cream. In a bowl add the marshmallow puff, butter, condensed milk and cream cheese. Mix.
  • Turn speed to low and mix in the cool whip.
  • Add some cream to the bottom of the platter. Place 5-6 strips close together and generously add cream (do not add cream to the edges, that will be done last).
  • Add four more strips and add more cream.
  • Add the remaining strips and more cream. Even out the edges by cutting off anything sticking out. Cover edges with cream as well.
  • Decorate with shaved chocolate or whatever decor you choose.

    The cream in this cake sounds amazing, never thought of using marshmallow puff before! Would you recomend using this cream-recipe in any other sweets/desserts? (Whats on my mind is cream horns actually)☺
