or Dark chocolate with cherry buttercream?

This recipe is pretty basic and uses a box mix and cherry pie filling(from allrecipes . com:

* 1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix
* 1 1/3 cups water
* 1/2 cup vegetable oil
* 3 eggs
* 1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
* 1 (16 ounce) can vanilla frosting
In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, water, oil and eggs; mix well. Spoon batter by 1/4 cupfuls into paper-lined muffin cups. Spoon a rounded teaspoon of pie filling onto the center of each cupcake. Set remaining pie filling aside. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted on an angle toward the center comes out clean. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Frost cupcakes; top with one cherry from pie filling. Serve additional pie filling with cupcakes or refrigerate or another use


For cherry buttercream, you can just add Lorann cherry flavor to a basic buttercream recipe.
If you can't get the flavoring, maybe try pureed cherries(drained)
