Ingredients

For the cake:
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 large eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon LorAnn cherry emulsion
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup half & half
1 cup maraschino cherries, rinsed & diced

For the frosting:
1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, room temperature
3-4 cups confectioners sugar, or to taste
1 teaspoon LorAnn pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon LorAnn cherry bakery emulsion
1/4 cup whipping cream
pink food coloring, optional
maraschino cherries, to garnish

Directions

For the cake:
  1. Preheat oven to 325ºF. Grease & line three 6-inch round cake pans. Set aside until ready to use.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter & sugar. Add the eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl after each addition.
  3. Add the vanilla extract, cherry emulsion & vegetable oil. Beat until incorporated.
  4. In a separate bowl sift together the flour, baking powder & salt.
  5. Alternate between adding the flour mixture & cream to the stand mixer bowl. Beat until batter is smooth, about 2 minutes.  Stir in diced cherries.
  6. Evenly divide mixture amongst the prepared cake pans. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the top bounces back to touch.
  7. Allow cakes to cool completely before flipping & frosting. If desired, trim dome off the top to produce a flat cake.
For the frosting:
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment add the butter & sugar. Cream until light & fluffy, about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the vanilla, cherry emulsion, whipping cream & food coloring. Beat until the whipping cream is fully incorporated.
  3. Frost cake as desired & top with maraschino cherries.
