- 1 box
- cherry chip cake mix, prepared according to directions
- 1 box
- powdered sugar
- 1/2 c
- lime juice, fresh squeezed
- 3 Tbsp
- grenadine syrup
- red food coloring drops
- limes, thinly sliced
- 1 bottle
- maraschino cherries, small
1Mix cake according to package directions; bake in bundt pan until done.
2After cake cools a few minutes, turn cake out onto cake plate/platter; allow it to cool completely.
3Divide powdered sugar equally into two small mixing bowls. In one bowl, add the fresh-squeezed lime juice. Add more juice, if needed, to make a glaze that will easily spread.
4In the second bowl, add the grenadine syrup and red food coloring. Again, add more syrup, if required, for glaze to easily spread.
5Glaze the cake first with the lime glaze so that cake is completely covered. Then drizzle the cherry (red) glaze over the lime in loops and swirls.
6Garnish the cake around the edges with lime slices and maraschino cherries.
7OPTION: Cherry extract or other cherry flavoring can be substituted for the grenadine syrup. Also, bottled lime juice works well in a pinch (faster and more convenient).
