Help, my daughter's 8th birthday coming, need cherry cake recipe

Her birthday is just 1 wk and a half away and she requested a cherry cake. Her birthday is on the 1st but we won't be able to celebrate it until Saturday when her cousins will be there and she and I both aren't in school.

She requested a cherry cake. I love to bake but for some reason I have never mastered spreading icing on top of the cake, so I figured there has to be a good recipe using cherry filling or pudding or something out there that can help me look like a hero and make her cake look wonderful for her birthday.

Does anyone have a recipe or any ideals???

I found a recipe for Cherry Anglefood cake that looked so good! Dont you know that I just threw it away 2 days ago because I was thinking that I wouldnt make it because I dont eat that stuff any more.

I have another box of angelfood cake mix in my cupboard, Ill see if by chance, the recipe is there too.


I have tons of cookbooks, Ill look for one for you.

leasmom..... Here is a good recipe where they even eliminate the oil. Uses cherry filling like you wanted.

Traditional Scottish Recipes
- Iced Cherry Cake

Cherry cake, with icing on top, is one of the mainstays of Scottish home baking tearooms.

8 ounces (One and a quarter cups in North America) self-raising flour (all-purpose flour with baking powder)
8 ounces (one cup) margarine
8 ounces (one and a quarter cups) caster sugar (fine granulated sugar)
4 eggs (medium)
8 ounces (one cup) glacé cherries
8 ounces (one and a quarter cups) icing sugar (frosting)

Preheat the oven to 325F (or slightly higher if not
an electric fan assisted oven) and line a baking
tray (8" x 12" x 1˝") with vegetable parchment or
waxed paper. Wash, dry and chop up the cherries
to remove the glacé coating (but retaining some
as quarter cherries to decorate the top later). If
you coat them in some flour it will stop them sinking
to the bottom of the cake. Cream the margarine
and sugar together thoroughly until light and fluffy
(to help the cake rise with the trapped air). Beat
in the eggs, one at a time, until smooth. Stir in the
flour and then add the cherries. Spread evenly
into the tin and bake in the middle of the oven for
about 40 minutes. Allow to cool in the tin. Add a
little water at a time to the icing sugar (frosting)
until it has a consistency which coats the back of
a metal spoon without running off. Remove the
cake from the tin and spread the icing sugar evenly
on top. Decorate with quartered cherries.

I know your DD is 1/2 Irish but maybe she could indulge, just once in a Scottish dessert.
