    EXTRA TIP.

    (Take 3 cups fresh pitted cherries +1 cup granulated

    sugar+1/4 cup. put these all ingredients together in stainless steel heavy based pan and cook on medium flame for one minute then cover the pan and cook it on very slow heat for 10 to 15 minutes. keep checking it and stirring meanwhile. when cherries are soft and there is no juice in pan, remove it from flame and let it cool.

    You can use it in your cakes according your recipe or you can

    put it in special bags or cans and freeze it.to use it, in off season later. Whenever you need it take it out from freezer and thaw it in microwave for 2 to 3 minutes, then put it in pan with mixture

    (1 Tab spoon cornstarch + ¼ cup water) and simmer it on slow flame . And use it in fillings.

    I don't remember the whole recipe, but it looks like you have the cake ingredients. Unless you were just going to use jam for the cherry filling, you will also need cherries and an alcohol--either rum or a cherry liqueur or kirschwasser. You also need some whipped cream, dream whip, or some kind of icing.
