READY IN: 55mins
SERVES: 8-10




  • Mix the pound cake mix as directed on the box.
  • Put 1/2 of the batter in a greased 9"x14" pan or a springform pan.
  • Mix in cocoa powder in the rest of the batter to turn dark brown. Gently spoon over the vanilla batter. (Use a spatula and "lay" it onto the other batter, as opposed to dropping.).
  • Lay cherries on top in rows, 1" away from each other. Do not press in, they will sink in while baking.
  • Bake 40 minutes at 350 (or until done). Let the cake cool completely.
  • Make the german buttercreme according to clara 12's Recipe #58987. And spread a rich layer (about half an inch thick) over the top of your cake when cool.
  • Finally pour one bottle of Magic Shell ice cream topping on top. Tilt cake to cover. And enjoy!
