We always feel special when Mom brings out this delightful dessert, whether it's for a Sunday dinner or a holiday meal. You can't help but impress people when you set this lovely torte in front of them.

I concocted this for a ladies get-together because several of us were watching our weight. I topped each slice of cherry cake with homemade mousse and chocolate covered cherries—sure to delight!

"A co-worker shared the recipe for these colorful loaves with me," writes Rose Harman of Hays, Kansas. "The red maraschino cherries and green pistachio pudding mix echo the colors of Christmas, so slices make a pretty addition to holiday trays. But their pleasant taste makes them appropriate any time of year."
