Ingredients

Cupcakes

1
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ yellow cake mix
3/4
cup pineapple juice
1/2
cup vegetable oil
2
tablespoons orange juice
2
tablespoons lime juice
3
eggs

Rum Glaze

2
tablespoons powdered sugar
2
tablespoons butter, melted
2
tablespoons spiced rum
2
tablespoons coconut rum

Frosting

1/2
cup shortening
1/2
cup butter, softened
1
box (1 lb) powdered sugar (4 cups)
1/8
teaspoon almond extract
1/8
teaspoon coconut extract
3
to 4 teaspoons milk

Garnish

24

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place foil or paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.
  • 2 In large bowl, beat all cupcake ingredients with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
  • 3 Bake 18 to 23 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove cupcakes from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely.
  • 4 In small bowl, mix glaze ingredients until sugar is dissolved. Brush glaze over cupcakes.
  • 5 In large bowl, beat shortening and 1/2 cup butter with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Gradually add 4 cups powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, beating until combined. Add extracts and 2 tablespoons of the milk; beat until blended. Add enough of the remaining 1 to 2 tablespoons milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, beating until frosting is light and fluffy.
  • 6 Spoon frosting into decorating bag fitted with #1M star tip; pipe frosting in circular pattern on tops of cupcakes. Garnish with cherries.

Expert Tips

If you are using 2 (12-cup) muffin pans and baking all the cupcakes at one time, rotate the pans halfway through the baking time to ensure even baking.

Don’t have a decorating bag? Simply spoon the frosting into a large resealable food-storage plastic bag and cut off a corner of the bag to pipe frosting onto cupcakes.
