It's super easy, you follow the directions on a box of devil's food cake mix, but substitute black cherry soda for water.

Put in papers and bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes
For the frosting the recipe called for cherry extract mixed with a container of vanilla frosting, I couldn't find any at my grocery store so I used Marachino cherry syrup instead. It worked, but the cherry flavor was a bit understated. If this makes the birthday party cut, I will use cherry extract.
To finish, top with a Cherry and enjoy!
I thought these cupcakes were delicious! Like I said, I will find the cherry extract for a little more of the cherry flavor next time. Definitely might make an appearance at the twins first birthday!
