"A friend brought this pretty pink cake to work for a birthday party," notes Judy Lentz of Emmetsburg, Iowa. "You can use any flavor of yogurt, but so far, I don't know anyone who's tried any other than black cherry because it's so delicious."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 22, 2012

I have made this cake twice and this last time I wanted more of a cherry taste so in place of the water I added dark cherry soda and oh my what a pretty pink I got and more of a cherry taste love this cake.

I've made this cake several times using the black cherry yogurt; last night I tried it with peach yogurt, and it was also a hit with the family. I used low-fat yogurt, as that is all that the grocery store had in stock, and regular frozen whipped topping. I plan on trying this with other yogurt flavors as well.

Thanks to the previous suggestion, I used (3) 6 oz containers of black cherry yougurt, and added 1-1/2 containers to the cake mix and 1-1/2 containers to the frosting. The black cherry flavor was delicious! I received compliments from many on this yummy cake. -Lori in WI.

MY REVIEW

This is one of the best summer dessert I have ever made, and so easy. For the person who said that the frosting did not turn out pink, I use 3 black cherry yogurts. I put 1 1/2 in cake batter and 1 1/2 in the cool whip. It adds a little more color and more of the black cherry flavor.
