"An elegant three layer cake that is moist and spicy and frosted with a delicious cream cheese frosting. This is a family favorite at Christmas in our household! I cut red and green candied cherries in half and decorate the top in a wreath pattern."

Directions

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour three 9 inch round cake pans. Place the cherry pie filling into the container of a food processor. Pulse until roughly chopped.
  2. In a large bowl, mix butter and white sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and allspice. Alternate stirring in the dry ingredients and cherry pie filling. Stir just until blended. Divide the batter evenly between the three pans.
  3. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool in the pans on a wire rack. When the cakes have cooled enough to handle, tap them out of the pans and allow them to cool completely on the wire rack.
  4. To make the frosting, combine the cream cheese, 1 cup butter, milk and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until blended. Gradually mix in the sugar, stirring until smooth. Spread frosting between the layers and onto the sides and top of the cake.

This cake is just marvellous, however I did tweak it up a bit. As I was creaming the butter and sugar together the butter had looked like wayyyy too little as it was only 1/2 cup to 2 cups sugar...

fantastic!!!

First I must say I'm not a big fan of cake. That said, I thought this was fabulous! It sounded wonderful so I had to try it. I put it in a bundt pan and it came out beautiful. I cut the frosting...
