Hi all.

I had a order for a cherry chocoalte cake that had to be delivered today and I was a bit concerned that the Cherry flavor wasn't going to pop and I didn't have any dried cherrys and wasn't going to buy any to make a 6" cake. lol

So, I added a Tablespoon plus a teaspoon in the extended chocolate recipe ( as I wanted extra to make cupcakes for a tasting) and just to be on the safe side I added a tablespoon of the cherry extract to the buttercream.

Of course I had to eat one, you know, for quality control. lol

The cherry flavor was very light, I think I could've added 1 Tablespoon and 2 teaspoons and 2 teaspoons to the buttercream to make it a stronger cherry flavor, but the way it was, well, it was pretty ok too.

Now I have a 18 extra cupcakes.

Oh I measured my 6" pans and got about 12 ounces of batter in them, that filled them just above 1/2. It baked up nicely and I had barely a bump to trim.

Which I treated my hubby to! lol

That's just to precious, don'tcha know? I was so good on my diet and excercise plan till I went to culinary school. They made us eat EVERYTHING!!! yeah , they put a Chef knife to our head and MADE us eat it, that's my story and I'm sticking to it. lol

We made so many yummy things, there was always a fight to take the extras home.

My neighbors would know when I was coming home and there was always a group in the courtyard. lol
