  • Combine cake mix, cherry soft drink, eggs, oil, and almond extract in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer on low speed until moistened. Increase speed to medium and beat for 2 minutes. Pour batter into the prepared cake pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 23 to 28minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely, at least 30 minutes.

  • Combine cherry soft drink, butter, and cocoa powder in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Stir and remove from heat.

  • Place powdered sugar into a bowl and pour hot cherry mixture on top. Mix until smooth. Stir in almond extract and allow to cool frosting lightly. Spread over the cake.

Editor's Note:

The directions for making the cake are based on the particular brand mentioned. Follow instructions on the box if using a different brand, substituting cherry soda for the water.
