Jama's Fancy Cakes

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!
