Arrange pineapple slices in the sugar. Easiest method is 4 down the middle and 3 on each side of that. Place cherry half, rounded side down in the middle of each ring. Pour cake mix carefully over the fruit. Bake at 375°F for 45-55 minutes until toothpick in center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes to let topping slightly set.
