Chocolate Cherry Sheet Cake and Pillowcases

ConKerr Cancer Project Pillowcases 

The pillowcases have been made, washed, dried, packaged and are ready to ship out for tomorrow. Hopefully they will be in Pennsylvania by Saturday, I may have to Express Mail them, but that’s okay – as long as they get there.  🙂  

The Supervisor (of course) was on hand to provide encouragement, and critique the final outcome prior to washing…….. 

Horratio, Chief Inspector 

He just HAS to have the final say on all sewing matters. How nice of him.  🙂  

I’d hate to hear what he’d have to say if they didn’t pass inspection! 


Now, to the fun stuff….. I came across a recipe in the files that I thought you’d enjoy. Chocolate and sewing are a wonderful combination!!  😉  



1 pkg devil’s food cake mix 

1 (21 -oz.) can cherry pie filling 

1 tsp almond extract 

2 eggs, beaten 


 1 cup sugar 

5 tblsp butter 

1/3 cup milk 

1 (6 -oz.) pkg (1 cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips 


Oven at 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 13×9 inch sheet pan. 

In large bowl, combine all CAKE ingredients, and stir well until mixed (by hand – not mixer). Pour into prepared pan. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. 

In small saucepan, combine sugar, butter and milk. Bring to a boil; boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in chocolate chips until smooth. Pour/spread over still warm cake. 


Oh, and have a piece for me too!!  🙂
