Shirley Temple Cupcakes

Okay everybody, be prepared for some motivation. If these next cupcakes don't make you want to run to your kitchen to do some baking, I don't know what will. Back in March, our family friend Krista celebrated a birthday, and I had to think of something really yummy for her. I found these Shirley Temple Cupcakes on Pinterest, and new that these were the ones!!

These were originally posted here on Armen Atoyan's blog. They're a little time consuming with all the steps included, but they're so good, they're totally worth it. I love Shirley Temples, and I love pretty much everything cherry-flavored, so these were right up my alley. And, the original recipe calls for a gluten-free flour blend...I'm not gonna lie, I totally just used regular AP flour and they turned out fine.

Not only did they taste phenomenal with the cherry flavoring on the bottom and the cherry flavored icing, but they look pretty cool, right? Awesome cupcakes for an awesome gal!


  1. Eek! SO cute. I love Shirley Temples and still order them when I go out to restaurants.

  2. These were indeed yummy! Great job sweetie.
