This is a really yummy cake..Hubby loved it..I would say it was more an adult cake than for kids..Perfect for festive gatherings.

This is a delicious butter pound cake with candied cherries and almonds. Like all pound cakes, it tastes better the next day. I used half green cherries and half red cherries which really gave it a "Christmasey" look. Hubby took it to work and said the hurdle was getting people to try it because they all suspected it was a fruitcake! I'd rename this "Christmas Poundcake" because that describes it perfectly. Yum!!

It was okay. A bit dry even though I followed other users suggested and added some water. Needs to be tinkered with but could be an awesome recipe.
