Cherry Layer Cake





It was yummy! Especially if you like cherry and almond extract. This cake is very good. And if you take your time and execute it properly, there is no reason it shouldn’t come out tasting even better than mine did. Even with all the over-baking and extensive folding of the batter, the interior texture of the cake was still nice and soft and fluffy,,
