As Emily excitedly gathered the ingredients, her eyes sparkled with anticipation. The recipe was wonderfully simple, requiring just an angel food cake mix, cherry pie filling, and optional toppings of whipped cream and maraschino cherries.

Preparation Steps:

  1. Preheat and Mix: The oven was set to 325 degrees. In the large bowl, Sarah and Emily combined the cake mix and cherry pie filling. Emily giggled as she stirred, watching the batter form. “Remember, don’t grease the pan!” Sarah reminded.
  2. Filling the Pan: They filled each cavity of the mini bundt cake pan just over halfway. “We have extra batter,” Emily noted. Sarah suggested using a small bread pan for the remaining batter, a clever solution.

  1. Baking Time: Into the oven went the pans for 22-25 minutes. Emily set the timer, her nose pressed against the oven door, watching the cakes rise.
  2. Cooling Down: Once baked, the mini cakes needed to cool completely. Emily was impatient but Sarah explained the importance of letting them rest.
  3. The Finishing Touch: Carefully, they removed the cakes from the pan. Emily used a butter knife, gently running it along the edges under Sarah’s guidance.
  4. Decoration: “Can we add the toppings now?” Emily asked excitedly. Together, they crowned each mini cake with a dollop of whipped cream and a maraschino cherry.
