Gluten Free Black Forest Cake
2 1/8 cups gluten free flour mixture
2 cups white sugar
3/4 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons xanthum gum
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon gluten free vanilla

2 cans potted cherries (cherry pie filling)

3 cups whipping cream
