Expert Tips

Look for dried cherries in the produce department, near other specialty or gourmet items.

Sweetened dried cranberries can be used in place of the dried cherries.

Bake and cool the cake; do not sprinkle it with powdered sugar. Wrap and freeze it. Thaw the cake at room temperature before unwrapping it and sprinkling it with powdered sugar.
