Cherry Chip Cupcakes Part 2

Today is the last day of Ella's preschool. Since I am the room mother, I tasked myself with cupcake duty. Everyone at her birthday loved this cupcake so much, I decided to make it again. This time I piped the frosting on and added sprinkles. Final touch: a cherry on top. My only mistake was not making enough buttercream. If you are piping, triple your recipe. I only doubled it. Thankfully I had enough ingredients to make more. It was just an annoyance. Also, if you are working with Maraschino cherries be sure to drain them and get them nice and dry before placing them on your cake. You will thank me for this!

  1. ok heidi--i want this recipe and more of them but not sure how to find it in an earlier post? Do I need to be a member? Do you refrigerate your cupcakes if you make them about leftovers from a party...put those in fridge or leave 'em out? I had read this blog months ago and can't believe I've remembered to come back just in time for both kiddies bdays (1 and 3 this October). Thanks so much!!!
