I just have to say it, these cupcakes are completely and utterly dessert royalty! Their texture is so soft and delicate then the almond-cherry flavored frosting literally just melts away in your mouth. They’re reminiscent of the cherry chip cake you get at the grocery store, however, they are much better than a box mix of course.

These are something like, I want to say, sweet, blissful cherry clouds (if you could only imagine what that would taste like). With a fluffy cake and a decadent almond and maraschino cherry flavor, you may just very well find these to be a new favorite cupcake. Enjoy!
