This recipe is delightfully easy and the frosting goes well on just about everything: cupcakes, cakes, cookies, you name it!
Don’t let the juice from your maraschino cherry jar go to waste!

The consistency is usually spot-on for me but if it’s a little thick for you, just add additional cherry juice, one teaspoon at a time to thin it out. The bonus in that is you get an even prettier pink frosting.
I used almond extract for the frosting instead of vanilla extract for two reasons; one, it’s clear so it doesn’t muddle the pretty pink color and two, cherry and almond go together so perfectly!
