      Made this for Christmas dinner, and it was beautiful and very tasty. Easy to make, too. Fat free, light and airy, so it went nicely with a heavier meal. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      I made this for my husbands birthday. I thought it would be the perfect cake for him because it combines two of his favorites - angel food cake and cherries. Needless to say it was a big hit. He loved it. :) I thought It was a nice way to dress up a boxed cake mix. Very easy to put together as well. We thought the cherry flavor really came through. Very good cake. Thank you!
