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!

How to Make Black Forest Cupcakes

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.
  3. Sift together and combine dry ingredients, including sugar, into a lrg bowl. Add eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla. Beat until well blended. Pour or scoop evenly into liners filling 2/3 full.
  4. 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)
  6. 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...
  7. These cupcakes should be kept refrigerated. Remove from fridge 15-30 before serving.
