Black forest cupcakes – your favorite cake in a petite cupcake size. Amazing and delicious!
Growing up, one of the cakes that I loved the most was Black Forest cake.
I guess I was always tempted by the dark and chocolate cake topped with cream.
Plus, Black Forest cake always looks so pretty with so many cherries that I just want to have a bite of the cake, and the cherries!
Now think of the same deliciousness, in the form of cupcakes.
That’s exactly what I have for you today: Black Forest cupcakes!
I saw this recipe and photos on my contributor’s Facebook page and I just had to ask her to share the Black Forest Cupcakes recipe here with us.
The texture of this cupcake is lighter compared to the regular Black Forest Cake.
It’s perfect as an afternoon tea, with a cup of coffee or tea.
I especially love the hidden treasure inside the cupcake, which is the cherry pie filling and the fresh cherry.
The top is fluffy whipped cream and shredded chocolate.
Anyway, each bite is just delightful, and you will just love how it looks.
