This recipe is awesome! I did add some of the cherry juice to the water added to the mix and put a little juice in the frosting as well. For a family that loves chocolate covered cherries, this is an excellent cake!

Excellent cake. We didn't taste it until Day 3 (it was refrigerated) but once we tasted it, it was gone in a flash! Very moist.

It was "OK" It didn't taste a lot like cherry. i even added a little of the cherry juice to the mix as another reviewer said. Didn't help much. It was Great as a CH. cake with some cherries and almonds in it, as a Ch. Cherry cake. not so much.
