Chocolate Cherry Cake

Well… there was just such great response to my Nana’s pecan pie recipe, I’ve decided I should share my chocolate cherry cake recipe.  It’s with serious hesitation that I do so.  After all, my site is dedicated to the joys of simple pleasures, and this is a very difficult cake.  But so many people have asked about the cake, I don’t want to let anyone down.  So…

I prefer two different sizes of round styrofoam.  This gives you a lovely platform for placing the cherries.

Truly, the most important ingredient… Duncan Hines chocolate icing from a plastic can.

Well, no.. the most important ingredient.. beautiful fake cherries which I found at Target.

Happy Holiday Baking!

    As absolutely luscious as your cake appeared in pictures, I hesitate to take it to the next church potluck.

    I don’t know. It sounds a little…er…dry. But I’ll bet a cake like that will feed a crowd. If I ever make it for a pot luck, I’ll be sure to write your name on it! 😉
