I finally got around to making a recipe from Simply Beautiful Homemade Cakes, reviewed here. These cherry almond cupcakes were the first pick on my to-bake list and ROCKED! If this recipe is any indication, I think I’m going to enjoy trying a few others from author Lindsay Conchar.
You will notice in the pic absolutely no actual cherries in the cupcakes, although you can place one on top if you want to. I prefer just the flavor, minus the canned cherries 😉 The icing gets its flavor and pretty pink color from maraschino cherry juice.
BTW, almond + cherry married together are delicious! These are perfect little Valentine’s Day cupcakes 🙂
