Fantastic! I followed the recipe very closely, substituting mini s/s chocolate chips because that seemed easier. I crushed the candy canes and used the small pieces in the cake, the large pieces for decoration and then sprinkled with candy cane dust. The only real change I made was to make a mint buttercream frosting between the two halves of the cake (using creme de menthe) which made it even mintier and a little less cool whippy. The outside did turn pink after it had sat for about 1/2 an hour, but I actually liked that - the candy cane powder made the cool whip taste slightly minty, which was a bonus :) I took it to a party and it was devoured within minutes.
