Cherry Frosted Angel Food Cupcakes

Yum
What's your favorite romantic movie?
My favorite, hands down, is The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks.
No matter how many times I watch it, I need a box of tissues.  Gets me every time.
I just love a good, sappy movie whether it is Valentine's Day or not.  How about you?  Do you love a good tear jerker?
You know what else I love?
A yummy dessert, especially little bites of scrumptious goodness.
Cherry Frosted Angel Food Cupcakes fit that bill.


You need absolutely no reason not to have a cupcake!
These cupcakes are light and have an amazing cherry flavored frosting,


6 ingredients!  Yes, that is it!
And just wait until you see what gives the frosting that cherry flavor!


The recipe will make 36 cupcakes which is perfect for a party, book club, Bunco, girl's night in, Valentine's Day...any gathering.  Oh, and the cherry flavor?  Keep reading...


The cherry frosting is flavored with a packet of cherry kool-aid.  Not only does the packet add flavor, but also a pretty color.



I love these cupcakes and I think you will too!

Ingredients:
1 16 ounce box angel food cake mix
1 1/4 cup cold water
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
1 packet cherry kool-aid (.13 ounces) powder
nonpareils
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a large bowl, Beat angel food cake mix and water on low.  Turn up the speed to medium and beat for an additional minute.  Line a cupcake pan with cupcake liners.  
Spoon batter into each cupcake lined cup (approximately 3/4 full).  Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes.  Remove from oven and cool.  Once cupcakes have cooled, beat whipping cream, powdered sugar and kool-aid powder until stiff peaks form.  Frost cupcakes and add a sprinkle of nonpareils.


Ok...here's the plan.  Make a batch of these cupcakes and pull out your favorite romantic movie...tissues are optional.  :)

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet,
Christine
