    Caroline Cooks's Note:

    Delicious cupcakes with a Mad Hatter twist! Great for any tea party; even Alice would approve. I've tweaked the basic recipe from a Pillsbury Bake-off finalist, Kathryn Fitch.

      I made these cupcakes last year for our family on Christmas Eve and everyone just loved them. I am going to make them this year for our annual neighborhood party between Christmas and New Years. The only time of the year that the stores stock chocolate covered cherries is during the holidays so I will make this an annual tradition. Thanks fo this delicious recipe.

      Delicious! Caroline, simply delicious! We really enjoyed these easy and quick to make cupcakes. A lovely cherry cupcake with great texture and subltle flavour. I love how the chocolate covered cherry frosts the cupcake, it was perfect. Thanks so much for sharing.
