Shirley Temple Cake Recipe | DIY Joy Projects and Crafts Ideas

When I was little, my parents were members of a club in Downtown Houston called The Cork Club and I got to go with them on a couple of occasions. One night we went to see Little Richard perform there and I remember going up to the bar and ordering a Shirly Temple, a delicious drink made with 7up, Grenadine, and Maraschino Cherries. Ever since that day, The Iconic Shirley Temple has been a favorite of mine, so you can imagine my excitement when I found this delicious Shirley Temple Cake! I couldn’t wait to make one and quickly started gathering my ingredients together.

  • 1 Box Cake Mix

Meanwhile, make the glaze:

In a medium bowl, combine powdered sugar with cherry juice, cream, and vanilla extract. Whisk until smooth and fully combined. When bundt cake is cooled, drizzle the glaze over the top of your delicious Shirley Temple Cake and top with your Maraschino Cherries (stems on).
