Decided to bake a cake instead, I also agree about not enough liquid,I used all the juice in the jar.I'm also tagging this recipe for the "Think Pink Event".
I agree about not having enough liquid. I increased the cherry juice to 8 Tbsp, but I still think there needs to be more cherry flavor. Next time I will add chopped maraschino cherries to the batter. For the frosting, I added 1 tsp cherry juice.
I tagged this recipe for the Beverage Tag game. The batter and frosting were a little on the thick side so I had to add a little liquid to both. The cupcakes weren't very sweet but the frosting added the sweet. The cupcakes were moist. I only used a 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips in the frosting I made these for my two pink loving granddaughters. Thanks Moonpoodle for such a cute cupcake. Bullwinkle
