Yellow cupcakes with cherry buttercream frosting topped with a maraschino cherry.
- Box of yellow cake mix
- 1 stick unsalted butter softened
- 5 cups powdered sugar
- 3 tablespoon juice from maraschino cherries
- 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
- 1-2 tablespoons milk
- 24 maraschino cherries plus extra for garnish
Bake cupcakes per package instructions. After you add the batter to the cupcake pan drop a marashino cherry in each cupcake. My cupcakes cooked at 350 degree for about 12 minutes. They are done when a toothpick or knife comes out clean.
Beat butter until creamy in a mixer with the whisk attachment. Add in powdered sugar, marashino cherry juice, almond extract and milk.
If frosting is a bit runny add more powdered sugar. If it is too thick add some more milk or cherry juice. Garnish with a marashino cherry on each.
