FLUFFY CHERRY ALMOND FROSTING
1 can fluffy white frosting
cherry juice from pie filling
Line muffin tins with paper liners
Pour cake mix into a large bowl
Add eggs, water, oil, and yogurt
Using mixer beat on medium speed until all is well blended
Fill paper liners half way with batter
Add one nice size teaspoon of pie filling to each, then top off with remaining cake batter
Bake in 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until done. (cherries will sink into cupcakes but not totally disappear)
Allow cupcakes to cool completely
Remove cupcakes and frost as desired.
Fluffy cherry almond frosting. Add heaping spoons of cherry pie filling juice to fluffy icing in a bowl.
Stir until well blended, tasting for desired cherry flavor, and added more filling as needed)
Add almond extract and stir till blended.
I also topped some with a fudge frosting
And since the tops sink in a bit, i scooped a bit of the cake out of the center of some cupcakes and filled with additional pie filling as the topping
