Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Look for dried cherries in the produce department, near other specialty or gourmet items.
  • tip 2
    Sweetened dried cranberries can be used in place of the dried cherries.
  • tip 3
    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.
