Black Forest Cupcakes

In an effort to fill up my teenage grandsons hollow legs,  decided to make cupcakes......They both love  black forest cake.  Shades of    the lemon top hat cupcakes I fondly remember from my childhood , decided to make a black forest  version. Yes I did cheat  ,  a cake mix and cherry pie filling. Busy playing chauffeur .
After the cupcakes baked I then sliced  a wedge out and filled with the  cherry mixture.

 Put  wedges back on top and then dusted with   icing sugar  .

These are a hit.
Brock and Brayden love them  even adding a bit of  whipped cream on top.
 I am so happy with the way they turned out would make them for a potluck..

That opening shot is lovely and don't those muffins look good! I like the cartoon about the escape button- I had a good chuckle when I saw it.

This has reminded of a very simple cake recipe a previous co-worker once shared with me.

Take a 8x8" cake pan and line the bottom with minature marshmellows, make a chocolate boxed cake mix as per the directions on the box and pour over the marshmellows. Then pour a can of cherry pie filling over top and bake until a tester comes out clean. Generally the time stated on the box is sufficient. As it bakes the cherry's will fall through the cake mix and the marshmellows will rise, creating a similair flavor to a Black Forest Cake. NO FROSTING is necessary. Easy Peasy.
