Nutty Cherry Cake

 Cherries....mmm!  What can I say?  They're one of the reasons I look forward to summer so much.

To satisfy my cravings, I decided to make a cake...another cake.  For reasons unknown to me, I never seem to tire of making cakes!

For this cake, I decided to add some freshly chopped nuts along the side, a little bit of whipped cream on top, and a few stunning cherries to finish it off with a little bit of color.
