Pink {Cherry} Angel Food Cake and a Pinterest Project!

I made this delicious cake yesterday, and couldn't help taking a picture of it!!  
I used one Duncan Hines Angel Food Cake mix, substituting 3/4 c. of water for maraschino cherry juice. Add the remaining 1/2 c. of water. Bake as directed.
For the whipped cream:
Use heavy whipping cream, adding 1/4 c. cocoa and 1/2 c. confectioner's sugar. Beat on high until almost "set." Add 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Finish beating cream. Note: you may need more sugar - go by the taste.
For the cherries:
Melt 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips with 5 tablespoons of butter. Drain about 25 cherries. Coat the cherries with chocolate, and put them on a sheet of wax paper. Freeze until ready to use. 
For the piped chocolate:
Use the remaining melted chocolate from the cherries. Put in a ziploc bag and cut a very small hole in the corner. Now just pipe to your heart's content!! (Make sure you pipe onto wax paper or you won't be able to get it off!!) There is no right or wrong way to do it - just kinda whatever you feel like!! Freeze until ready to use.
Enjoy!!! See my other project below:
I FINALLY got my dry erase board!!! I got the frame from TJMaxx for $10, and the markers from the store for $2 {clearance...yayy!!}. I highly recommend getting a marker with the eraser on the end - that way you don't have to have a giant one laying around someplace. I'm not very happy with the paper behind (a drawing made by yours truly ~ this reveals how h-o-r-r-i-b-l-e of an artist I am), but I haven't been able to find paper big enough. The frame is 11x14, so scrapbook paper doesn't fit. I will have to find a piece of {chevron} wallpaper. {It's GOT to be chevron, right?!!} Anyway, all in all, I got another Pinterest Project done!! Only three more to go as you can see below.
