  • Sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl and stir in the sugar.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, add the eggs and Cherry Coke®, and beat together using an electric mixer. Add the melted butter and beat until smooth.
  • Spoon the batter into 12 paper liners set in a muffin pan or tin and bake in a preheated oven, at 375°F for 20-25 minutes, until they are risen and firm. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  • To make the frosting, beat together the butter, confectioners’ sugar, and crème fraîche or yogurt until well blended.
  • Beat in a drop or two of food coloring until a pale pink, then add boiling water, a tablespoon at a time, until the mixture comes together in a light, glossy frosting.
  • Spoon the frosting onto the cupcakes, shaping into a peak with the back of the spoon, or put into a pastry/piping bag and pipe it over the cupcakes.
  • Top each cake with a cherry and serve immediately.
