Original recipe yields 12 servings (1 dozen cupcakes)

Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Mix cake mix and cherry-flavored cola together in a bowl until batter is smooth. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups about 2/3 full.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until muffins spring back when lightly touched, 18 to 23 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. Beat cream in a large bowl using an electric mixer until frothy; beat in confectioners' sugar until stiff peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the frosting will form sharp peaks; refrigerate.
  5. Cut a well out of the top center of each cupcake and fill with 2 to 3 cherries from the cherry pie filling. Transfer frosting to a piping bag or a plastic bag with 1 corner cut off. Frost cupcakes and top each with a maraschino cherry.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • This recipe makes 12 cupcakes with batter and cherry pie filling leftover. My boyfriend loves to eat the leftover batter (no eggs!). If you're making 24 cupcakes, just double the amount of whipping cream and confectioner's sugar, plus the optional filling and cherries on top!
  • I prefer a piping bag and a Wilton® 1M tip for frosting the cupcakes.

I peeled off the cupcake wrapper and it fell apart. It was all mush with the cherry filling their were too many cherries. I didn't enjoy this recipe.

They where so good! I put some cherry flavoring in the frosting. I also had some leftover batter, so I made a little cake.
