Maraschino Cherry Cupcakes...Simple Bliss

Yum, yum, yum. I am so happy today because I finally made cupcakes. On today's menu: Maraschino Cherry Cupcakes.

Here's what I did:

A box of White Cake Mix (3 Egg Whites, Water & Oil)
A handful of Maraschino Cherries
A container of Fluffy White Frosting
A box of assorted food coloring, red for this one.

Pots, Pans and Misc:

Cupcake pan
Cupcake cups/liners
Food processor (if you don't have one, no worries)
Cooling racks (if you don't have one, no worries)
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • First, take the handful of Maraschino Cherries and mince or put in food processor. Make sure the cherries are fine and not chunky.
  • Follow instructions on the box for batter.
  • Fold minced cherries into the batter.
  • Line cupcake liners in pan. Add 2/3 of batter into each cupcake cup.
  • Bake for about 20-22 minutes.
  • Once baked let cupcakes cool for about 10 minutes. Remove the cupcakes and in a cooled cupcake pan repeat steps 5 & 6. 
For the frosting I took out however much frosting I needed and just added one drop of food coloring.  If you want a lighter color, then add more the white frosting. And for the cherry on top, pat cherries dry before you place that finishing touch on your cupcake.

Pleeeeeaaaseee, with a cherry on top? Okay...
