I made this cake last night and put it together this morning. It has no eggs, dairy or butter in it. The only beef I have with the recipe is the cashew icing is a bit watery, and I'd use firmer cherries next time, the canned seem a bit runny. Other then that this is a wonderful recipe and worth taking the time to make. The cake is very moist and the hint of cherry liquor comes through just right. I baked my cake in two 8" round cake tins and cut each one in half thus having 4 layers instead of 3. This recipe came from the Vegetarian Times Cookbook. The cake is very sturdy which was great when cutting the layers in half and it takes the syrup very well and doesn't fall apart.
