Cake:
  • Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon into bowl.

  • Beat butter in second bowl until smooth and creamy. Beat in granulated sugar and maple syrup. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each. Drain potatoes; puree in food processor or mash with fork. Add potatoes and 1/2 teaspoon maple extract to butter mixture; beat until smooth. On low speed, beat in flour mixture just until incorporated. Fold in walnuts. Transfer batter to pans, dividing evenly.

  • Bake in 350 degree F oven 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pans on rack 10 minutes. Remove cakes to rack to cool completely.

Frosting:
  • Beat cream cheese, cream, extract and butter in bowl until smooth. Add confectioners' sugar; beat until good spreading consistency. If necessary, refrigerate to thicken if butter becomes too soft.

  • Sandwich cake layers together with 3/4 cup frosting between each layer. Frost top and side of cake. Garnish with glace cherries.
