Five Stars!!! I used the Vanilla flavored Cool Whip Frosting from the frozen section at the grocery store and it was amazing! Everyone loved it! Thanks for the great recipe!
Well this is truly a 4 1/2 star cake for me but it is very good! I can't say it is my favorite cake (I still love my lemon poppy seed cake more) but this is wonderfully delicious and different in its own respect. I did use a white cake mix called cherry chip (has flecks of cherry bits in it) flavored cake mix in place of the white for added cherry flavor and I only used 3 eggs as called for on my recipe box and not whites. Other than that all was the same and I really appreciate the wonderful change of pace. Sweet and delicious. My husbands coworker enjoyed the cake as well.
This recipe makes a very yummy cake. I had never had one that tasted like it before. The cake mix starts off white, but when you add the cherry juice, it turns a pretty pink color. I had trouble with the layers sliding when I was cutting it, but I think that was because the canned icing was too soft. I should have let it set up longer, but was too impatient to taste it. I used Betty Crocker Rich and Creamy Vanilla icing. I highly recommend this delicious and easy cake. Made for Spring PAC '09.
