These cupcakes are the best cupcakes...EVER! I've made them a few times now. My husband said that he thinks it's the best cupcake he's ever had! Everyone always LOVES them. Now...for the tips: I've used canned cherry pie filling (putting 3 inside each, then topping with 3) buy 2 cans of the pie filling if you go this route. I'm about to make them again though, and I'm using Cracker Barrel's cherry cobbler filling instead. It tastes SO much better than canned store brands. Also, I read the reviews of others before making them and found that using 2 tbsp of batter for the bottom, then the cream cheese layer per the recipe and then 3 cherries, then topping with batter works perfectly. Also, for the cream cheese filling, I found that doubling the sugar made it taste a little better, otherwise it just tastes like straight up cream cheese. Oh, and I use store bought cream cheese frosting for the top...NOT Cool Whip and NOT Duncan Hines brand (it's too runny), Betty Crocker is actually my favorite, so far. Oh, and the best cake mix is Duncan Hines Devil's Food chocolate cake mix (substituting apple sauce for the oil). Anyway, these are SO worth the time and effort!
