black forest cupcakes

These are pretty much delicious, and SO easy to make!
What you need:
Chocolate cupcakes(see recipe below)
Cherry pie filling, store bought or home made
whipped cream
Vanilla icing ( you can use a can of store bought, I never do, I make my own BUT I don't know how I make it, it is delicious and wonderful and next time I make it I will take time to measure and stuff so I can share it)
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar

1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1/3 cup vegetable, peanut or light olive oil
1 cup cold water, milk or chocolate milk

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Mix all dry ingredients first, then add the rest. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. 
wait until they are completely cool!

When the cupcakes are cool go ahead and spoon out a section of the centres (see 1st pic) and fill in with cherry pie filling. 
Mix whipped cream and icing until firm peeks are formed, if either whipped cream or izing is too runny try adding some icing sugar.  When icing is ready put into a piping bag and pipe around the cherry's.
There you have it! simple and delicious!
