  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease a 12-cup bundt pan with shortening, then lightly flour. Set aside.
  • 2
    In a large bowl or bowl of a stand mixer, beat cake mix, pudding mix, water, butter, eggs, almond extract and about 8 drops green food coloring on low speed 30 seconds. Increase speed to medium and beat 2 minutes. Pour batter into prepared bundt pan (batter will be very thick). Spread batter evenly.
  • 3
    Bake 38 to 43 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool cake 10 minutes in pan, then remove and cool completely on a cooling rack.

    Meanwhile, make the glaze: In a medium bowl, stir together powdered sugar, cherry juice, milk and butter until a glaze forms (add more milk or powdered sugar as needed to achieve proper consistency). Pour glaze evenly over fully cooled cake. Let sit a few minutes to harden.
