    NanaD's Note:

    In the 1950's, when cake mixes first came out, there was only chocolate, white or spice. To make something special, I came up with this.

      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.
