I created these cupcakes for my office semi-annual bake sale to raise money for the charity, Cookie for Kids' Cancer. It was necessary to have a cupcake that would appeal to a large number of people in order to raise more money. Even those who were not crazy about cherries loved this cupcake because the strong vanilla flavor balanced the tartness of the cherries. The pink cake and white frosting with pink cherry juice was also visually appealing. All two dozen cupcakes went within the first hour of the bake sale.
