Cheer Loud for Cupcakes!


I made this several weeks ago and I finally have an excuse to make them again!  They were super delicious and there is not one ounce of diet in these bad boys.  I had to alter the frosting since I could not find cherry extract for the life of me, but no worries the cupcakes still tasted divine.  If you come from a state where Cheerwine is not sold then (1) I apologize and (2) I will be praying for you.  Get to baking!

*recipe can be found at Happily Ever After



Cheerwine Cupcakes 

  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1 box cherry Jello-O
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup Cheerwine
  • 1 8-oz. package cream cheese, soft
  • 1 tsp. cherry extract (Substituted Vanilla Extract)
  • 4-5 cups powdered sugar




For the Cupcakes:   Mix all ingredients well and fill cupcake papers 1/3 full.  (Makes 2 dozen)


Beat the cream cheese, cherry extract, and enough powdered sugar to make a somewhat stiff icing; using more sugar if needed.
Pipe onto the cooled cupcakes, garnish (if desired) and refrigerate until needed.
