This is a version of my orange dreamsicle cake but with different ingredients. All my friends really like how the dreamsicle cake is so refreshing on a hot summers day that I thought a cherry one would give the same effect. You can use suger-free ingredients expect for the cake mix and milk which I use 2% all the time, if you want. I have made it and its yummy. Hope you enjoy as much as we do.

I have made both the orange dreamsicle cake and the cherry cake. They are very easy to make and delicious. My family devoured this cake.
