I made this cake for a birthday. I liked that it didn't use canned pie filling or a boxed cake mix. The cake actually has a nice chocolaty taste. The cherries at the store only come in 14.5 oz cans so I went with that size. When I was bringing them to a boil they appeared to have a dark peach/pink color but not red. So, I added a few drops of red food coloring and it worked perfect. I was worried about the whipped cream not holding up the next day on the piped part, so I made a recipe of stablized whipped cream from this site for the piping part. I do suggest using a smaller tip for the bottom piping, then the top, although the recipe does not mention that. The cake may be transported so I used a round cardboard to decorate the cake on, on a cake stand. I thought the final cake looked very attractive. I hope everyone enjoys it tommorrow! Thank you submitter.
