Yes, but the alcohol works against properly thickening the cherry filling 
and you lose some of the flavor to the long baking time.

I like the idea of Kiri's applesauce cake; however, I'm thinking a sharp 
gingerbread using the cherry juice and Kirschwasser as part of the liquid 
ingredients with the cherries tossed in as filler.
