Ever since I can remember, a cake was a box mix, with icing. These days we can do so much more with that box mix. I found a red velvet cake box mix that had a recipie using cool whip and canned cherry pie filling and sliced almonds on the side of the box. I added to that by using chocolate frosting on the sides. After all chocolate and cherries do go well together. This is a double layer velvet cake with cool whip, sliced almonds and cherries in the middle, and on the top with chocolate icing on the sides.

Then I had the idea of using this no bake, home made cheesecake filling instead of coolwhip. This time, instead of a double layer cake, it is a velvet bunt cake. The center hole is the cheesecake mix.

Once the cheesecake is set I iced it with chocolate frosting and added the cherry pie filling

Surprisingly the only large amounts of sugar is in the frosting. The cheesecake is made with equal, the cherries are light, and the velvet cake only has 6 grams of sugar. Still small slices as it is rich, and tastes very sweet.
