Cherry Devil's Food Cake

This rich cake is so tasty that it doesn't need frosting. However, to make it a beautiful addition to your table, carefully lay a lace doily over the cooled cake and sprinkle powdered sugar over it. Carefully remove the doily (you might want an extra pair of hands) and you've got a lacey cake!
