Rum and Cherry Coke Cupcakes

Hi all,

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!

My Changes:

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!
