Created for RSC #12. This cake ended up being one of the best cakes I've ever had! It isn't quite a cake and isn't quite a cheesecake but a mixture of the two. When you bite into it you experience a velvety firm texture, lemony cheesecake flavor and fruit that pops in your mouth. If you enjoy fruity lemony desserts you'll love this! I used cherries in this but if you prefer blueberries they should be great in it also. When the contest is over I can imagine using any fruit. *I've tried since making a strawberry version and it was too wet. I've also tried regular cake mix and cream cheese and it was wet also so I guess subbing ingredients changes the texture.
