We all love black forest cake, here I am going to share mini version of black forest cake that is black forest cupcake. It is said that chocolate and cherries are a match made in heaven. The chopped cherries blend into the ultra-rich chocolate cake, giving these cupcakes a cherry flavor.  A chocolate cupcake with a cherry filling, topped with a sweetened whipped cream and chocolate, yeah no one could turn it down. My family loved these cupcakes, and seriously who wouldn’t? 

Serve Black Forest Cupcake along with Heart Shaped Sandwiches and Espresso Coffee to your guests when they visit you at home.
