Lesson #97: Red Velvet Cherry Cupcakes

I'm usually not a big fan of red velvet cake, but these cute cupcakes stole my heart. The cupcakes give a nod towards being a red velvet cake, but incorporate an AMAZING cherry flavor. What's the secret? Reducing a good amount of cherry cola by half and adding a bit of almond extract to the cupcake batter. The frosting is a combination of cream cheese and whipped cream. The frosting is sweet & tangy and has an INCREDIBLY light texture. I might pass on a red velvet cupcake, but never on one of these.

LESSON LEARNED: Reducing cherry cola and adding almond extract give these cupcakes a pronounced cherry flavor.
