Incredibly moist Buttermilk Spice Cupcakes with Cherry Frosting are so good! My daughter had fun frosting these by filling it in, but they totally frost like normal cupcakes.
We love cupcakes at our house, mostly because they are the perfect serving size and while I’ve posted a few here before, this week has been a cupcake explosion at our house.
It all started with my Pink Champagne Cupcakes with Strawberry Champagne Frosting. Then my kids wanted to make something more kid like (I get it) and so thus began the quest to find the perfect cupcake to make.
It didn’t take long to decide on these delicious Buttermilk Spice Cupcakes with Cherry Frosting though. I mean, can you blame us? They are incredible! But then my daughter has a knack for baking and she comes up with some fun flavor combinations.
I have a totally funny story about our cupcake making escapades that I will probably post over the weekend, but in the meantime, I really wanted to share this delicious cupcake. They lasted less than 48 hours and we made over 2 dozen Buttermilk Spice Cupcakes with Cherry Frosting!
This was totally my daughter’s idea and then we googled it and found out that Martha Stewart had some cupcakes that were very similar. At any rate, these were my brilliant daughter’s idea even if Martha Stewart did come up with them first. ahem.
And she had a blast making them and cutting out the centers to fill with frosting. She used a cookie cutter for some but overall she just cut into them with a knife. I’m telling you, just in case you want to.
However, she only did this with about a dozen of them. All the others and any future batch, we simply piped the frosting on like normal.
The sweet cherry flavor seriously compliments the spice of the cupcake. The buttermilk helps make the cupcake super soft and moist. These are super easy cupcakes to make and everyone adores them.
How do I store cupcakes?
For best results, cupcakes should be cooled completely. Store cooled cupcakes in an air tight container. I have a container I purchased specifically for cupcakes, but any container with a tight fitting lid will work.
Most cupcakes should be stored on the counter at room temperature but only last approximately two to three days.
