Cheerwine soda can be a delicious shortcut for making a decadent cherry-flavored cake. The soda adds a deep cherry sweetness and helps create a fluffy texture. It can be used in various cake recipes, including Bundt cake and pound cake. Adjust the amount of sugar to prevent the cake from becoming too sweet. Cheerwine can also be used as a substitute for water in a cake mix, enhancing the flavor. The soda can be infused into frostings and glazes, and fresh cherries can be added for an authentic touch.
