Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom only of 13" x 9" pan with baking spray with flour. Chop cherries; set aside.
Beat cake mix, cola beverage, oil, eggs and 1/4 cup reserved cherry liquid in a large bowl with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in chopped cherries. Pour into pan.
Bake for 35 to 43 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
Mix frosting and marshmallow creme in small bowl until smooth. Frost cake. Top each piece with 2 cherries.

Special Touch: For chocolate-dipped cherries, melt 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon shortening in microwave; stir. Dip well-drained cherries with stems into chocolate; refrigerate to set.
