Step 3: Assemble and Bake the Pake
Pour a little batter into your greased cake pan. Enough to cover the bottom of the pan about 1/4" deep. I am using a 9" cake pan.
Now carefully take your pie out of the pie pan, and plop it into the cake pan. (Make sure your pie is cool. You don't want to burn yourself on cherry pie filling.) I put my pie in right side up, but I would reccomend putting it in upside down. I think it would be easier to do, and leaves more room for pouring the batter on top.
Now pour some more batter on top. DO NOT ADD TOO MUCH! I did, and it went over the side and burnt on the bottom of the over. Leave at least 1/2" from the top of the pan.
Take your extra batter, and save it for later in the fridge, or make a second layer, or a second pake. I used a pan of star cupcakes that made a nice decoration on top.
Put it in the oven, and follow the directions on the box for baking.
