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!

I've always loved Black Forest cake. And I just love it even more in cupcake form. These travel so well, they'd be perfect for your next pot luck!
