Glory from the delicious blog Glorious Treats got into the loving spirit of Valentine’s Day with these swoon-worthy Maraschino Cherry Cupcakes. The decadent dark chocolate petite cakes offer a heart-shaped window onto a lush spread of Maraschino Cherry Frosting. This stunning confectionery effect can be easily accomplished at home, so you can ensure you steer clear of the Dog House this Valentine’s Day.

Glory started with cool chocolate cupcakes. She lobbed the domed portion of the cupcake off and then topped the flat cake with a generous dollop of the violently pink Maraschino Cherry Frosting. She then took the top and, using a heart-shaped cookie cutter, created a lovey-dovey cutout to be placed atop the frosting. She finished these adorable Maraschino Cherry Cupcakes with a soft sprinkling of confectioner’s sugar.

The perfect sumptuous tribute to the one who makes your heart go pitter pat, these Maraschino Cherry Cupcakes are sure to earn you an ample amount of brownie points from your beloved.Photo Credits: cupcakestakethecake.blogspot, glorioustreats.blogspot
