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!
