We came up with these fun Cherry Cupcakes yesterday. I think they turned out so cute and they are pretty easy to make! We also gave them a cherry flavor!
Duncan HinesWhite Cake Mix
1 Small Box of Cherry Jello
Duncan Hines Frosting Creations
Duncan Hines Cherry Vanilla Flavor
Lime Tootsie Rolls
Green Apple Sour Punch Straws
Here are some of the products that you will need....
We mixed boxed cherry Jello into our white boxed cake mix. We scooped our mix into mini muffin tins. Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes until set. Let them cool. We mixed our Frosting Creations cherry vanilla flavoring into the Duncan Hines frosting. Frost the cupcakes...
I had my little helpers and one of them couldn't wait to dive into our mini cherry cupcakes!:)
Dip the cupcakes in red sprinkles after frosting them.
My youngest helper adores sprinkles!
To make the stem you will need green Tootsie Rolls and Green Apple Sour Punch Straws. You want to take the Tootsie Roll and cut it in half. Then take that half and pinch in down in the middle. Press the sides with yours fingers to look like leaves. You can also use a toothpick to make any details on the stems. Cut your sour straws in half and press the leaves on the top. They will stick. If not then just secure with frosting. Poke a hole in 2 mini cupcakes with a toothpick. Press your stems in the holes as far as they will go. That's it! Now you have super cute Cherry Cupcakes!
