    • Sorry about leaving that step out of the directions. Add the cherry liquid with the coca cola, eggs and oil. We will add it as soon as we can. They are updating our site, so it may take some time before we can add that in.
  1. I couldn't find where to add the cherry juice to the batter. The directions on the cake mix box only compensated for the 1 cup of liquid, so I was afraid to add the extra 1/ 3 cup from the juice so I left it out. Also, the icing called for cherry juice to the prepared icing. This turned the icing pink (not like your pic) and made it very runny . My cherries kept sliding off! The cake itself was tasty, but I definitely need to refine it!
