This cake is so moist and looks so pretty on the table.

Instructions

Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan. Place pineapple slices around the bottom of pan. Place a maraschino cherry in the center of each pineapple slice. Sprinkle 1/2 cup walnuts over the pineapple and cherries. Set aside. Prepare cake mix according to package directions; spoon cake mix batter over pineapple, cherry and nut layer. Sprinkle rest of walnuts over cake mix batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center, comes out clean.
