Frosted's test kitchen was full of cherries, walnuts, and the world was pink and fluffy and sweet for days on end...
My first version was made as the recipe called for. I lathered thick buttercream on top. I thought it tasted great, but wanted a more tender texture.
I ended up with FOUR versions of this cake! I altered ingredients and mixing methods. I tried powdered sugar on top of one version:
I made one version as a round 10" layer cake frosted with home made white chocolate whipped cream. (yumm!)
But in the end, it was this version that won out:
A tender and moist but fluffy bundt cake with lots of cherries and walnuts. An almond glaze topped it off and it went great with a frothy mug of my favorite chai tea.
