A lovely cherry cake that uses maraschino cherries and a cream cheese-cherry-coconut icing. Very festive and pretty to look at.
I wonder if this recipe is sincere - copha and 3 cups of sugar! - it was far to sweet and heavy. It did not pour into the tin, but had to be spooned in and was too big for the ring tin. I had to throw the cake(s) out - what a waste. - 16 Jul 2011
I made this yesterday for my husband's birthday and he loved it. Even though I cheated and used a pound cake mix, I still used this frosting recipe, cutting the sugar down to 1 1/2 cups. The frosting was wonderful and would be great on any type of cake. - 17 Mar 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is a moist and delicious cake. The recipe makes a big cake. If you love cherries you will love this cake. - 24 Nov 2000 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
