This is very yummy cake, and the icing was yummy. I made a 13 x9 cake, and added maraschino cherries for garnish for each piece. I will definately make this again. This is a keeper.

Good. Used at potluck. did not try frosting. Used small amt. can fudge frosting while cake was warm.

Very moist - excellent. I put the cherry pie filling in the mixer with the cake mix to crush the cherries as we don't care for them whole in cakes. We loved it!
