Pink Flamingo Cake

If the name didn’t hook you, the hot pink, amazing-tasting cake itself will. But really, pink flamingo cake, how could anyone resist it?? This candy-colored confection is a fun, fruity feast that looks great and tastes even better! It gets majority of its flavor and color from cherries, both maraschino cherries and cherry jello, but it also has a touch of pineapple in the frosting to round out the overall flavor and bring a little more brightness to the dish. Just thinking about it we need another slice right now!
