Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes

A friend of mine has a husband in the National Guard, and he was away on a training mission this last week.  He was coming home on his birthday, so his wife wanted to surprise him and his unit with some cupcakes.  She told me he likes chocolate and cherries, so I made chocolate cupcakes injected with cherry pie filling, frosted with cream cheese frosting, and topped with a maraschino cherry.  They came out cute and really delicious!  The wonderful men and women who volunteer to serve our country really deserve this special treat.

Cream Cheese Frosting

2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, soft
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream, cold
1 tsp vanilla extract

Beat cream cheese with paddle attachment on medium speed until smooth.  Add powdered sugar and beat on low until incorporated, and then on medium until smooth.  Add the cream and vanilla.  Beat on low until incorporated, then increase speed to high and beat 1 minute.  Must be refrigerated.
