I like to bake but don’t often find the time, except for special occasions (and even then I am so strapped for time that I cheat a little with a pre-made mix or something straight from the bakery). This recipe was a little experiment I tried when I actually had a little free time, a lot of sweet tooth and a crazy craving for fruit and chocolate. I hope that you like the combination that I came up with. I think they turned out very tasty! These chocolate orange cupcakes with maraschino cherry frosting are perfect for a tea party or just because! Enjoy.
