cherry ripe cupcakes

I work with cake lovers.
Every occasion is celebrated with cake.
You’re the new starter? You bring cake.
It’s your birthday? You bring cake.
You happened to swing past the cake shop on your way to work? You bring cake.
You do something noteworthy at work? You bring cake.

In my case, I’m leaving.
Which means I have to bring cake.

So I made a batch of Red Velvet cupcakes, and a batch of cherry ripe cupcakes.

Taste.com.au has the super easy recipe which I made into a cherry ripe cupcakes.

What you need
The Cupcakes
2 cups Self Raising Flour
¾ cup castor sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 eggs
125 g melted butter
¾ cup milk
2 (50g) packets glace cherries (chopped)

The Icing
400g icing sugar
50g soft butter
200g cream cheese
½ cup desiccated coconut.

The Method
Mix dry ingredients (flour, sugar, cocoa powder) in a large bowl. Make a well in the center.
Mix wet ingredients (eggs, butter, milk) together and then pour into dry ingredients.
Stir until just combined and then add the glace cherries.

Pour into patty cake lined cupcake tray.
Place in 200deg oven for 20 – 25 minutes.

While that’s in the oven make the icing.

With a mixer beat the butter and the icing sugar together.
Once that’s started to cream together, add the cream cheese until it looks smooth.
Add the coconut.

You need to wait for the cupcakes to cool before you can ice them – but once they’re iced, mmmm.

    1. I am very happy with my new job – closer to home and more dollars in the bank.
      And more of a challenge too.
      But probably less time for blogging and crafting but that’s ok.

      I would love to do a guest post! I’ll think up some ideas and get back to you.

  1. hi! i’m a bit too lazy to look for your email address so i’ll just write you here, hope that’s ok. i want to do a sort of introduction of my “sponsors”/button swap buddies, and while i realize november is almost over already (where did it go??) and xmas and all it’s preparation and stress is around the corner i still wanted to ask you if you’d like to participate. i’d love to do either a small intro (with a few lines of you introducing yourself and some additional question I haven’t thought of yet) OR if you’d like to do a little guest post (perhaps one telling your story, a wintery/xmas inspiration post, a recipe or a post about something you love). Are any of those something you want and have time for? if so, let me know asap and we’ll make it happen. 🙂 xo, Stina stina (dot) berggren (at) gmail (dot) com
