  1. Prepare Dried Cherry Filling: In small saucepan, combine dried
  cherries, water, and 2 T sugar. Beat mixture to boiling over high
  heat; reduce heat to low and simmer cherries until soft and liquid is
  reduced by half. Remove from heat and transfer half of cherry mixture
  to blender or food processor fitted with chopping blade; process
  until a chunky puree forms. Return pureed mixture to saucepan with
  remaining dried cherry mixture; add cornstarch and stir until well
  blended. Heat mixture to boiling, stirring constantly; cook until
  thickened. Remove from heat and stir in 1 T Marsala and the lemon
  juice. Cool to room temperature.
  2. Prepare Coffee Syrup: Combine coffee with remaining T sugar and 2 T
  Marsala; set aside.
  3. Prepare Chocolate Cake: In small bowl, stir boiling water and cocoa
  until smooth; set aside to cool to room temperature. Heat oven to
  350'F. Grease a 15 1/2 by 10 1/2-inch jelly-roll pan and line with
  waxed paper; grease and flour paper.
  4. In large bowl, with electric mixer at medium speed, beat sugar and
  shortening until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after
  each addition. Beat in vanilla and cooled cocoa mixture.
  5. Into small bowl, sift flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
  Add flour mixture to shortening mixture alternately with buttermilk,
  beating until batter is smooth. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan
  and bake 18 to 20 minutes or until center springs back when gently
  pressed. Cool cake in pan on wire rack 10 minutes. Invert cake onto
  wire rack, remove waxed paper, and cool cake completely.
  6. Prepare Cream-Cheese Filling: In large bowl, with electric mixer at
  medium speed, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar 2 minutes. In
  small bowl, beat cream until soft peaks form; fold whipped cream into
  cream-cheese mixture just until blended. (Do not over-mix.)
