3/29/2018 - Made with cherry pie filling, crushed pineapple, chocolate fudge cake mix and 1.5 stick of butter. The 1.5 cups of chopped walnuts were too much.
7/30/2018 - I used a 21-oz can of blueberry pie filling, a 20-oz can of Dole crushed pineapple, and Duncan Hines Orange Supreme cake mix. I chopped one cup of whole walnuts. I may have accidentally baked it at 450º, but it was OK.
7/30/2018 - I used apple pie filling with Betty Crocker Butter Pecan cake mix. I've never refrigerated the result, but we haven't gotten sick yet.
1/12/2020 - I used cherry pie filling and crushed pineapple with Betty Crocker Super moist yellow cake. It looks like some of the cake mix did not get moistened.
3/4/2020 - I used 2 12-oz cans of raspberry cake and pastry filling with 6 ounces of walnut halves and pieces, 1/2 cup coconut, 20-oz crushed pineapple, and pineapple supreme cake mix. The raspberry filling surprised me because it had the consistency of jelly. I mistakenly put the pineapple down before the raspberry, but it seems to have come out okay.
6/2/2020 - I used apple pie filling, but it was only a 20-ounce can. We are keeping the result in the refrigerator out of fear of ants.

9/9/2020 - This was almost identical to the August 24 preparation except I used a can of blueberry pie filling and chopped walnuts.
