Remove from the oven and let cool in pans for about 5 minutes. Then run a knife around the edges of the pan, and turn the cakes out onto wire racks. Cool completely.
To make frosting:
Bring your cherries, water, sugar, and syrup to a boil in a saucepan, and cook for about 5 minutes to soften the cherries. Drain, pat dry, and cool.
Beat well butter in a large bowl until smooth. Then beat in almond extract and amaretto syrup until blended.
Mix in the cocoa powder, then gradually add the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, until the required consistency is reached.

Place one layer of the cake on a plate or cake stand.
Spread about 1 cup of tour frosting on top of the cake layer.
Place half of your sliced cherries over the top.
Repeat with the 2nd and 3rd layers.
