Vanilla Cherry Cupcakes

I just recently celebrated my  birthday. Instead of a chocolate birthday cake with magic candles (candle light that just won't die even how hard you huff and puff) I opted to make some very delicious vanilla cherry cupcakes! No candles here but just juicy and oh so  tempting red cherries on top.

The vanilla cupcake base is taken from Ming Makes Cupcakes' Vanilla Cupcakes with Lemon Filling and Meringue Frosting  recipe.

Vanilla Cherry Cupcakes 


1 1/2 cup cake flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick butter, room temp
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup milk

Mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Beat in butter gradually. Beat in sugar and mix thoroughly. Beat in eggs, then vanilla and milk. Beat just until mixed. Pour into lined cupcake pan. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out almost clean.


1/4 cup milk 
1 cup confectioner's sugar 
Long stemmed red cherries

Mix milk and confectioner's sugar. Add or lessen milk to attain desired consistency and thickness of frosting. Spoon over cupcakes. Garnish top with cherry.
