Cherry & Almond Cupcake recipe

If you popped into my recent side-by-side baking post where I looked at eggs curdling in cake batter, you may have been left wondering what I did with the cupcakes.  Well, those plain and humble cupcakes were very simply transformed into these pretty and inviting Cherry and Almond Cupcakes.

That soft pink icing, which is so pretty, is courtesy of the addition of a little cherry jam!   There's no added colours, or ingredients with fandangled names or numbers, just a spoonful or two of simple cherry jam!  How easy is that?

And that lovely pink colour surely makes them suitable for a girl's birthday party, a Valentine's day treat especially if they were sprinkled with a few mini sugar hearts ..... or even just because!

    1. Thankyou Jacqueline, it's amazing how nicely the jam works in the buttercream, though I think it brings more of a colour than a flavour given that there's not too much jam in it.

    1. It's a lovely colour isn't it Corina, though i must admit that there wasn't too much cherry flavour in the buttercream from the jam, though the jam in the middle of the cake certainly made up for that :-)
