Cherry Almond Cupcakes were another flavor that I took to our Corvette Club picnic this weekend

This was my favorite flavor!  I love anything Cherry or Lemon flavored.  The cherry syrup that I used in the icing made it a pretty pink color.  I think just looking at these cupcakes screams summer and fun!
