1boxwhite cake mixplus ingredients on back of box, *replace the water with champagne*
1boxcherry flavored jello mix3 oz
cherries16-20 or one for each piece of cake
1-2squareswhite chocolate candiquikdepending on how my cherries you’re dipping
1-2containersgold glitter sprinkles
Bake the cake mix according to the directions on the package, however substitute the water for champagne, so if your box calls for 2/3 cup water use 2/3 cup champagne.
Allow the cake to completely cool before poking holes.
Once cooled, use a straw to poke holes all over the top of the cake.
Combine the cherry jello mix and boiling water, and stir until dissolved.
Add in the cold water, and stir again.
Pour the jello mixture evenly over the cake, allowing it to seep into the holes you created.
Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Before serving, top the cake with cool whip and garnish each piece with a cherry dipped in gold sprinkles.
Pour the gold sprinkles in a very small bowl.
Wash and dry the cherries. Melt 1 square of white chocolate candiquik with vegetable shortening in the microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds on 50% power. Continue to microwave on 50% power in 20 second intervals until the chocolate is melted.
Dip one cherry at a time in the melted chocolate, allowing the excess chocolate to fall back into the bowl.
Then dip each cherry into the bowl with gold sprinkles. You may have to shake or rotate the sprinkles to get them to cover all of the chocolate. Place on a plate to harden until your ready to use them.
