Cake mix hacks make the best recipes! This Cherry Marble Cake Recipe takes an ordinary cake mix and creates a custom flavor!
The cherry pie filling in my pantry was calling my name! So I made this Cherry Marble Cake! If you’ve been around Today’s Creative Life, then you know my love for cake mix recipes. You’ll have try my Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies or my Strawberry Lemonade Cake. Both of them start with a cake mix!

My husband and son aren’t big fans of cherry pie, so I knew they wouldn’t be interested in my making this Cherry Marble Cake. I can see them turning up their nose now. So while they were out of town, I took advantage of their non-cherry loving selves and decided to make a fun dessert just for me!
And since I couldn’t really eat the whole thing, I shared with a neighbor. There was a bit left when they got home and they said it looked like a Marble Zombie cake.
Which is totally gross! But I can kinda see their point. So…. if you’re a fan of The Walking Dead or the new show, The Santa Clarita Diet, this Cherry Marble Cake may be the perfect dessert to make while you watch it. We tried watching both of those shows and it’s just not my thing.
Don’t let all this zombie talk scare you way, it really does taste delicious.
I thought about putting a glaze on top or whipped cream, But I have to admit, once this beautiful Cherry Marble Cake was out of the oven, I was only focused on eating a piece. But a simple glaze made with powdered sugar would be nice.
