  2. In a large mixing bowl beat margarine or butter with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar and beat on low speed of electric mixer till fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, and beat well on medium speed. Gradually add flour mixture to beaten mixture, beating on low speed till well blended.

Spoon about 1 teaspoon frosting over each cherry, spreading to cover cherry. If necessary, add additional cherry juice, 1 teaspoon at a time, to thin frosting.
