These cupcakes kick things up a notch, thanks to the addition of cherry pie filling. The red velvet batter is made via a classic combination of cocoa powder, flour, eggs, white vinegar, buttermilk, vanilla extract, red food coloring and several other items. Once they have baked and have had a chance to cool, a core is cut out of the center of each and cherry pie filling is added. Replace the top, frost with cream cheese icing and enjoy!
