I know it’s been a really long time. I was busy finishing up my physical education degree, finding a new apartment, wedding planning, and working. I want to try and get back into the swing of things on here now that things have calmed down a bit.
Since I often cook from recipes that I find online, I am changing the way I post on here. I will give you links to the recipes I used and tell you about any changes that I made instead of posting the whole recipe.
What a better way to get back into things than with cupcakes! I love cupcakes!! They are amazing and have so many variations. This cupcake was inspired by the delicious rum and coke drink. I like to use cherry coke in my rum and coke. Thus I decided to make the drink into a cupcake. Yummy!
The cake recipe comes from Tasty Sweet: The Chronicles of a Cupcake Artist
The frosting recipe was inspired by Raspberri Cupcakes: A Sydney Baking Blog
1. I added about 1 teaspoon of maraschino cherry syrup to the cake batter. I wanted just a bit more cherry flavor in the cake.
2. I used a sour cherry spread in my frosting.
3. I decorated with white sugar pearls to represent the carbonation in the Cherry Coke!
Keep on baking!
