      Fabulous cupcakes! I almost passed these by for a recipe with a shorter ingredient list, but I'm glad I didn't. The cake part wasn't super-sweet, but it didn't need to be with the frosting. The cherry vanilla buttercream was lovely in both taste and texture, and piped perfectly. Not only were these delicious, they were pretty too. I liked that I didn't need my mixer for the cake batter, so I was able to make the buttercream without having to wash my mixing bowl first. My only complaint was that I ran out of the buttercream with 3 cupcakes to go, so I dug out some canned cherry frosting that I had (a terrible substitute, but all I had). In the future, I would probably make a 1.5 batch of the buttercream and just pipe a thicker frosting layer across the board. A definite winner in my book, thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2013

      I probably received more compliments on these than on anything I have ever taken to work. People were just amazed. I took more than twice as many as I needed to take, and there wasn't a cupcake left.

      This was a very good recipe. I added 2/3 cup of sugar per the other reviews and 2/3 cup of malted milk powder. The cupcakes had a great flavor and were just sweet enough. I also increased the recipe for the icing and found I had way too much. I guess this is all in a personal preference on how much icing you like on your cupcakes. If you are piping it on so it stacks up, you will need more. The recipe, as is, is perfect for regular icing. I did add a little more cherry preserves as I wanted more cherry flavor. Also, the icing is very sweet so a less sweet cupcake is perfect. I sprinkled the top with red crystals and topped with a malted milk ball.
