  5. Once the cake is fully baked, with the help of a sharp knife, slice away 3 layers from the cake.
  6. For the icing: In a wide vessel, mix sugar and butter and beat until fluffy. Stir in vanilla extract. Beat in enough milk mentioned in the ingredients list, and keep stirring until the icing becomes easy to spread.
  7. Place a butter paper on a flat dish, place first cake layer onto it. Spread the icing on the layer. Cover fully on top and all sides. Squeeze in some cherry juice.
  8. Place the second layer, cover with the icing and squeeze in cherry juice. Repeat the same for the third layer.
  9. Place the cherries on the top. Grate the dark chocolate and sprinkle on the cake.
