Black Forest Cupcakes {Cherry Bomb Cupcakes}

Since Halloween costumes are starting to come out, I figured it was about time I posted this 4th of July treat. (Seriously- how is it August?  I am so disoriented!)

I don't know about you, but around here we celebrate America's birthday by blowing things up.  Nothing says the 4th like fireworks, smoke bombs, and sparklers.  These Cherry Bomb cupcakes therefore, are pretty patriotic, don't you think?

They are yummy any time of year, but if you want to make them for the 4th, the blue cherries make them extra cute. (Roland brand makes these.  You can find them at specialty shops or on the internet.)

Happy Super Ridiculously Late Birthday America!

Black Forest Cupcakes

-24 chocolate cupcakes (I just made a Devil's food mix according to package directions, subbed milk for the water, added a big scoop of Hershey's special dark cocoa, and a big dollop of sour cream.)
-1 large can Cherry pie filling
-Stabilized whipped cream frosting
-Maraschino cherries and chocolate, for garish

When cupcakes are completely cool, you can remove the center of each cupcake using a cupcake corer, or you can just cut an inverted cone shape out of the middle of each cupcake using a knife. 

Fill each cupcake with cherry pie filling.

Frost with stabilized whipped cream.  I used a large round tip.

Garnish cupcakes with cherries and chocolate shavings.

(To make chocolate shavings, just pull a vegetable peeler along the side of a bar of chocolate.)

Pin It!
