Oh  if you like Cherry Pie, you will LOVE these Cherry Pie Cupcakes!




Cherry Pie Cupcakes

I love how bright red cherry pie looks and was thinking how cute it would be to have cherry pie topped cupcakes. One quick trick and I got the cherry filling to sit on top even after baked. Then piped frosting on to look like a pie. Loads of fun!
 To be sure the pie filling would stay on top I added an extra cup of flour and it worked! To be sure the red gingham check cupcake papers stayed bright, I double lined the cupcake tins, first with white liners. Then with the red check liners.


The cherry filling did go to the side a bit, but I wasn’t too worried, I knew once the frosting was on, they would be ok.


They were. I think the frosting was the cutest! Just the right amount too with the sweet cherry filling. The double papers looked to pretty! These would be perfect on any holiday table or even a picnic.

Prepare cake mix according to package directions, add in 1 cup flour. Place three tablespoons batter into each section of the cupcake pan top with two cherries and some syrup.
