Ok I have to fess up, I can’t stop eating a cupcake I created the other day for a birthday canning party. I have been thinking of this cupcake recipe for a while now and the birthday canning party was the perfect excuse to make them. The birthday group said it was the best cupcake they have ever eaten, and I would have to agree, it’s definitely the best cupcake I have created so far!
I’m one of those people that will think about recipes for days. Go over it and over again in my head until it drives me crazy. Then I must make it. I guess I should be happy that I have this problem.
If you were one of the lucky ones that came to the Maraschino Cherry class; here is the recipe!
Don’t laugh but I used Betty Crocker super moist chocolate fudge cake mix but made it my way. This comment “made it my way” is a standard joke with my family. They ask did you make it your way and the answer is usually “of course”.
1 box Betty Crocker Super Moist Chocolate Fudge cake mix
1/2 cup maraschino cherry juice
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Place two cherries in each cupcake liner then fill with cupcake mixture
Follow directions on box to bake cupcakes
For the frosting:
1 stick soft butter
4 oz cream cheese
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup maraschino juice
Wait for cupcakes to cool before frosting
Place one whole cherry on top of each cupcake after frosting.
See you in class
