December Cupcake Spotlight (Black Forest Cupcakes)
I have had many requests for cupcakes using cake mixes. I can understand people wanting the ease of a mix, especially near the holidays. However, you can make this cupcake with your favorite scratch chocolate cake, just add the cherry flavoring to the recipe.
Now traditionally, Black Forest Cake has a cherry flavored liqueur. I have substituted it with maraschino cherry juice instead. I did that for one simple reason. I wanted to make a universal cupcake that would respect everyone's lifestyle choices. That being said, if you rather use cherry liqueur, go ahead, I will never know.
This cupcake is so simple to make, and definitely has a great presentation. You can make it like I have with the red cherries, or be really creative and look for the green or blue maraschino cherries. Be your own little cake designer and enjoy this month's special cake :o)
