Black Forest Cupcakes + Stable Whipped Cream Frosting

Maggie wanted a Black Forest cake for her birthday, after seeing one at the grocery store. We settled on cupcakes and came up with this. Super easy since I used a boxed cake mix, but I did make a stable whipped cream frosting to use.

Black Forest Cupcakes
1 box chocolate cake mix
1 jar maraschino cherries, drained
1/2 recipe stable whipped cream frosting
chocolate shavings or sprinkles

Stable Whipped Cream Frosting
1 pkg cream cheese, softened
1 t. vanilla
1/2 t. almond extract
1/2 c. sugar
2 c. whipping cream

Beat the cream cheese, extracts and sugar until smooth. Slowly pour in the whipping cream, scraping the bowl a couple times, and beat until stiff.

The frosting was light, but held up, and would be a really good fruit dip as well.
