One of my all-time favorite drinks is Cherry Limeade.

It’s such a fabulous flavor combination!

Today I am sharing a simple and delicious cupcake version. 🙂





The Cherry Limeade Cupcakes I have seen combine lime cake and cherry frosting.

I decided to do something different…


I made cherry cake full of maraschino cherry chunks, topped with tangy lime frosting.

DELISH!


I also wanted these cupcakes to be quick & easy, so I started with a cake mix.

So here is my version…you are going to love it!

Cherry Cupcakes

  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1/2 cup maraschino cherry juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 10 oz. jar maraschino cherries (cut into quarters)

Lime Frosting

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 4 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/8 cup milk
  • Stemmed cherries for garnish
  •  green & yellow food coloring gel (optional)

Cherry Cupcakes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cupcake pan with paper liners.

In a large bowl, combine cake mix, cherry juice, water, oil and eggs. Mix until well blended. Fold in maraschino cherries. Pour batter into prepared liners and bake for 18-20 minutes.

Lime Frosting

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add 2 cups of the confectioners’ sugar; mix well. Add lime juice and milk. Mix in the remaining confectioners’ sugar. Add just a dab of the green and yellow food coloring gel. Keep covered.

Pipe frosting on the cooled cupcakes and top with a stemmed cherry before serving.


Enjoy!
