How to Make Chocolate covered cherry cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  1. To make the cake:

    Set a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F.

    line the bottoms of muffin pans with muffin paper liners.

    In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

    In a standing mixer with the paddle attachment, beat the butter at medium speed until smooth, about 2 minutes. Increase the speed to medium-high and slowly add the sugar. Continue beating until light and smooth, about 4 minutes. Turn the mixer off and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula. Add the cocoa powder and vanilla and beat at medium speed for 1 minute more. (Stop the machine and scrape down the sides of the bowl again, if needed.) With the mixer running at medium-low speed, add the eggs, one at a time, beating for 1 minute between each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.

    Add water and milk in a saucepan and bring just to a boil. Remove from the heat. and set aside.

    With the mixer at low speed, add the flour mixture, about a 1/4 cup at a time. Carefully pour the hot liquid into the batter. Remove the bowl from the mixer and, using a spatula, finish combining the batter until smooth. Lightly drop into muffin liners. in muffin pans.

    **Insert 1 cherry into the center of each cupcake**
  2. Bake for 15-18 min at *350.

    Remove and let cool before decorating.
  3. In a standing mixer, using the whisk, mix together sugar and butter(room temp) . Mix on low speed until well blended and then increase speed to medium and beat for another 3 minutes. Add vanilla and cream and continue to beat on medium speed for 1 minute more, adding more cream if needed for spreading consistency.
  4. Pipe frosting ontop of cooled cupcakes, and add Chocolate sprinkles and a cherry on top :)

    Enjoy!!!!! :)
