The bride-to-be would like a Cherry Chip cake for her shower this weekend. I assumed - and incorrectly I guess - that D.H. no longer makes this cake mix. I have not been able to find it in Pillsbury or B.C. either. Can anyone please supply me with a recipe? I would like to to be cherry chip only with NO chocolate as it is a pink theme.

The bride's second choice is the strawberry and D.H. does have that flavor.

I would use a white cake mix and chop up very finely some marinchino (sp??) cherries; then make sure to dry them well - on paper toweling?
The only other way I can think of is to buy some cherry hard candies (those round lg gumball size jaw breakers?) and crush them. Do you have a grocery store that sells bulk candies? That is probably your best bet for finding them. Good luck.

agree with kakelady as something you can try. You can substitute the chrry juice for the water (or part of it anyway). I have a cherry cookie recipe that I do this with.

I bought cherry chip cake mix recently .. betty crocker brand. But I had to go to 3 different stores to find it. Finally got it at a Meijers. Walmart, Kroger or the other locally owned grocery didnt' carry it.

I too have been looking for Cherry Chip cake mix as it is my favorite and had not been able to find it for the longest time. I finally did find it at Walmart, the SuperWalmart, but not the regular Walmart near my house.

I just use the WASC recipe and chop up some marschino cherries, add some of the juice to help make it pink and I also add some finely choped walnuts or pecans. YUMMY!

You can just use red "jimmies" also....... rather like the FUN FETTIE cakes, but just using one color....I would use the cherry juice with this one also....
