Nice cake, but not sold on the texture of the filling. As per other comments, doubled the butter but did not increase the amount of confectioners' sugar. Was still _very_ sweet on its own, but didn't overpower the cake/cherries/cream. Unfortunately it was sort of gritty, likely due to the anti-clumping starches in the sugar. Everyone else liked it way more than I did. Also used dehydrated skim milk in the whipped cream as recommended, the swirls kept their shape for the week it took us to eat it. One more note, I used fresh sweet cherries and soaked them in kirsch. Unfortunately the party date was changed, so they continued soaking for several days and I was worried about them being too strong, not having much cherry taste left, etc. I ended up mixing in additional fresh ones when baking the cake - this turned out OK but the textures clashed a bit, and I would say it wasn't necessary.
