Tried it a 2nd time letting the cranberry mixture cool to room temp. It worked out much better.

Mine did not come out looking like the photo, but folks still liked it. I wonder if the cranberry mixture should cool before placing on top - it doesn't really specify in the instructions. People really did like it though.
