Who doesn't like cupcakes? AND who doesn't like black forest cake? Well don't answer that...lol I just tweaked my Black Forest Cake Recipe to fit a cupcake...and wanted to share with you all. Hope you like and enjoy!

Please note that I used Robins Whipped Icing recipe for this. I have always used Regular homemade whipped cream, but Robins method holds up much longer. Thank you for this recipe Robin!

1/4 c
milk
pinch
cream of tartar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Icing: In a large mixing bowl, combine powdered sugar, milk, tartar mixing well. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.
2
Cupcakes: Preheat oven to 350...Place 24 paper liners in cupcake pans, set aside.

Bake for 17-21 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
5
Cool cupcakes on wire racks. When cool, using an apple corer, make a hole for filling. Reserve 24 cherries out of the pie filling, then place pie filling into holes. (I got 2-3 cherries and some sauce into each one)

Remove powdered sugar mixture from refrigerator and mix in whipping cream on medium-high speed until cream forms stiff peaks. Top each cupcake with whipped icing and reserved cherry...

These cupcakes should be kept refrigerated. Remove from fridge 15-30 before serving.
