This recipe is a pretty to look at chocolate cupcake. They take a little bit of extra work, but it’s worth it! I make cupcakes for my fiance and his fellow firefighters every time he works a shift, and these are the ones that disappear the quickest!
Jama’s Fancy Cakes
1 (18.5 ounce) package chocolate cake mix
3 cups heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
1 Preheat oven according to box directions for cupcakes. Line cupcake pans with cupcake liners. (Be sure to use liners, and not just the pan.)
2 Mix cake according to package directions. Fill cupcake liners slightly less than half full. (You want the cupcake to bake up close to level with the top of the liner.
3 Bake according to package directions. Cool completely.
4 In chilled medium bowl combine whipping cream and sugar. Beat with an electric mixer on high until stiff peaks form. Refrigerate until ready to use.
5 After cupcakes are cooled completely, frost with a level layer of whipped cream frosting.
6 Spoon remaining frosting into pastry bag fitted with a star decorating tip. Pipe around the edges of the cupcakes.
7 Spoon a small amount of cherry pie filling in the center of each. Refrigerate and enjoy!
