      These were a huge hit! They look gorgeous and they are pretty easy to make. Hubby and kids raved over these. I followed the recipe exact except I did not have cherries with stems, so I decorated the tops with stemless ones :) These would be fabulous at a party or shower. A couple suggestions if you make these: watch carefully, because I left mine in for 18 minutes and they probably should have come out a bit sooner. Also, the frosting recipe makes A LOT! I think I probably could have cut it in half. Our cupcakes had about 3/4 of an inch of frosting on them and I still had extra frosting. Thanks for posting this, RecipeNut!

      So good! I changed the recipe a little... used a boxed devil's food cake mix because I was short on time, and omitted the drizzled chocolate over the top because I didn't think it needed it. They came out really pretty and tasted great. Thanks!

      This was a really good recipe! I made 1/2 of the batter into cupcakes, and made the other half into a mini tub-cake with chocolate and cherries in the middle. I took a picture just for fun. Thanks for the recipe!!:-)
