My boyfriend asked me if I could make a cherry cake that his mother used to make for his birthday. She said it was a box cake, but that she didn't think they sold it in the stores anymore. She was right, however I surfed the web and found this recipe and my boyfriend said it was just like he remembered if not better than he remembered!! Thanks!!!!
