- Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a 12-cup standard muffin tin with baking cups. Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. In a heatproof bowl, whisk together sugar, cocoa, and chocolate. Whisk in cherry juice.
- Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat, then continue to simmer until bubbles recede and solids on bottom of pan begin to turn golden brown, about 6 minutes. Pour into sugar mixture; whisk until well combined and chocolate has melted. Whisk in eggs, then dry ingredients.
- Divide batter evenly among cups. Bake until tops spring back when lightly touched, 22 to 24 minutes. Let cool in tin 5 minutes; transfer to wire racks and let cool completely. Refrigerate at least 2 hours and up to 12 (this will help create clean cuts).
- Use a 1 1/2-inch heart-shaped cutter to remove a 3/4-inch-deep heart from each of 6 cupcakes (removing a bit of additional cake, if desired, to create more room for frosting). Fill a pastry bag fitted with a large, plain round tip (such as Ateco #806) with frosting. Pipe frosting to fill heart cutouts. Pipe 1/4 cup frosting on remaining cupcakes. Top frosted cupcakes with heart cutouts. Cupcakes can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 2 days.

BLEEDING HEART CUPCAKES
- 1. Line cupcake tins with paper liners. Fill the liners two-thirds full with the batter. Place 1 marble or tinfoil ball between each liner and the tin. This will make a dent in your cupcake when it bakes to make it heart-shaped. Bake the cupcakes as directed in the recipe . If you are using marbles, be careful when removing the cupcakes from the tins because the marbles will be very hot.
- 2. With a small paring knife, cut out a circle about the size of a dime in the center of each cupcake, going about two thirds of the way in. Pull the little plug of cake out. Cut off the top of this piece (about 1/2 inch thick) and eat or discard the bottom. Use a teaspoon or a squeeze bottle to fill the hole partway with the strawberry jelly "blood." Put the little cake plug back in. Continue with the rest of the hearts.
- 3. Put one third of the frosting into two separate bowls. Color one bowl of frosting with the red food coloring. Tint the other bowl of the frosting blue. Tint the remaining two thirds pink.
- 4. Frost the cupcakes with the pink frosting. Make it super smooth by dipping a butter or frosting/palette knife in a bowl of hot water and smoothing it over the top. With the pastry bag or a knife, use the red and blue frosting to make veins on the hearts.

Instead of just plain white cupcakes, I took it a step further and made them special. You can change the colors for any holiday. Shades of green for St. Patrick's Day, pastel colors for Easter, red white and blue for the 4th of July. You get the picture.

MONOGRAM HEART CUPCAKES
Cupcakes crowned with fondant hearts add charm to any party. The hearts are monogrammed with bride-and-groom initials, but you could also make just one initial for a baby shower, or a birthday or going-away party. You can make the hearts (see page 299 for instructions on working with fondant) up to several months in advance; store at room temperature in an airtight container. You will need a small rolling pin, a two-inch heart-shaped cutter, and new, clean rubber stamps with initials, which can be custom- made (see Sources, page 342).
Yield makes 48
Number Of Ingredients 5
- Make fondant hearts: Using a small rolling pin, roll out half the fondant to about 1/8 inch on a work surface lightly dusted with cornstarch. Blot one of the monogram stamps in cornstarch, and quickly but gently press stamp into the fondant. Repeat, blotting stamp each time in cornstarch and leaving about 3 inches between each imprint, until entire surface has been stamped. Cut out hearts by centering and pressing a 2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter over each imprint. Remove all excess fondant from around the cutout shapes; roll out again, and stamp and cut out more hearts. Repeat with remaining fondant, using the other monogram stamp if making cupcakes for a couple, to make an equal number of hearts with the two stamps.
- Using an offset spatula, carefully transfer fondant hearts to parchment-lined baking sheets; let stand at room temperature until completely dry and firm, about 1 day. Hearts can be stored in an airtight container, between layers of parchment or waxed paper, until ready to use (they will keep for several months).
- Tint buttercream desired shade with gel-paste food color. Transfer to a pastry bag fitted with a large French star tip (Ateco #867). Pipe frosting onto each cupcake, swirling the tip and releasing pressure as you pull up to form a peak. Cupcakes can be refrigerated, uncovered, up to 1 day.
- To finish, bring cupcakes to room temperature and insert fondant hearts upright into frosting.
