That's a good idea! I don't know if this helps, but about a week ago, I got the idea to add a tub of store-bought frosting to my cake mix. It turned out great and made the cake supermoist. I didn't change anything else in the directions - I just dumped the frosting in. You might try doing that with the cherries and just see how it turns out. Let me know what you do, I'd love to try that.

I used butter pecan Duncan Hines cake mix and added the Coconut Pecan frosting. The cake was gone in about three hours! I might start doing this to all my cakes.

It was just a practice cake becuase I had just gotten the Wilton Course II book. So I frosted it in the regular buttercream frosting using the recipe in the Course I book. It turned out really great. I used imitation pecan flavoring in the frosting instead of vanilla or butter flavoring.
