Cherry Cordial Cupcakes

Happy Tuesday!! Yesterday went by quickly, and I am hoping today will be the same... My first small group of the year starts tonight (we are doing Beth Moore's Breaking Free) so it will be a long day until I get to head home to see my sweet hubby and puppy!

I don't know why, but I had baking fever all weekend...! There are a few Pinterest recipes that have been burning a hole in my pocket, so I decided there would be no better time than Super Bowl weekend to try them out (even if they weren't football themed).

What you need:
- Cupcakes
- Frosting
- Maracino cherries

I used a boxed cake mix for my cupcakes and premade frosting, but if you're feeling extra ambitious, I encourage you to make these from scratch! The original recipe was chocolate cake and frosting, but I'm a vanilla girl.

How to:

1. Once your cupcakes are fully cool, use a paring knife to cut a 1.5 inch-ish deep heart out of the center of the cupcake (I tried to use a heart cookie cutter, but the edges of the cookie cutter were not sharp enough to make a convincing heart shape).

2. After removing the heart shape, cover the inside of the cupcake with frosting.

3. Once you frost the inside of the cupcake, place 2-3 cherries inside, and top with some of the cherry juice (the cherry juice absorbs into the cake, and makes for a very tasty cherry flavor!).
