This traditional German dessert is made lectin free, grain free, and low glycemic with these black forest cupcakes. Serve at a "spooky" soiree or at any cold weather holiday gathering.
Set aside 18-20 cherries for decoration, and soak the rest in 1/4 cup kirsch overnight.
BAKE for 15-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool and remove the cupcakes from the pan.
DECORATE the cupcakes using a pastry bag filled with the cream or a cake decorating tool. Alternatively, spoon whipped topping onto each cupcake and gently shape into a "mound." Place a decorative cherry and some chocolate shavings onto each cupcake.
Kirschwasser is cherry brandy.
