You cannot begin to imagine how excited I was when I saw this recipe. I have been looking for a quick and easy cherry cupcake to satisfy my grandma's love of cherries for a while, but unfortunately this recipe let me down. I was looking for a sweet treat, where this recipe tasted like a spoiled cherry tart. I guess ingredients is key. If our looking for a sweet filling I would suggest making your own or using a pudding base with maraschino cherries. Also the frosting tasted rancid, but that could just be my immense hate for shortening. What can I say? I'm a butter girl. The consistency was also way too thick for this type of cupcake. You need a lighter frosting that wont overwhelm the filling. A great idea but not so great taste.
