    Miss JJ's Note:

    Super yummy! I made these because it was something different and also I could make small sizes to take to work...this makes cake portable! They are PERECT for spring/summer! I tweaked this recipe a little bit, the original is from Betty Crockers Annual Recipies 08 cookbook.

      These were great fun to make & a hoot to share with everyone around ~ My other half took some to share at work & again at a meeting he attends, & several neighbors were delighted when I took some to them! This is definitely something I want to include on my finger food counter the next time I host a gathering! Absolutely loved the cherry flavor, & next time I get some great tasting fresh cherries, I'll do these up with a freshly pitted cherry on top! Thanks for sharing the recipe! {Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current round of Pick A Chef]
