This is the only dessert that I like to eat at Olive Garden. I, too, thought it was cherry when I first started trying to figure this recipe out at home and added a lot of cherry flavoring to the icing. Wasn't right though. Come to find out -- it is almond flavoring. Try it and you will be pleased.

I made this the other night in preperation for my son's 10th birthday. I also went and bought a slice of the actual Olive Garden cake. Upon taste testing with my friends, we've decided that the frosting also needs a tad bit of cherry flavoring. We tasted more cherry in the frosting than the actual cake. So, I've decided to add at least a half teaspoon of cherry extract to the frosting. I'm hoping it won't add too much of a tint...does anyone know of a clear cherry flavoring??
