Easter bake sale

I know it's a bit early, but I'm going to be on holiday for Easter and couldn't let the occasion go by without a bake sale. I made these cupcakes with marzipan and cherries, in a nod towards the traditional simnel cake. I got the recipe from BBC Good Food but instead of putting the almond essence in the actual cakes, I added it to the icing along with some yellow food colouring to make it look like egg yolks. I guess if you don't like almonds / marzipan you definitely wouldn't like these, but at least two people have said they're the best cupcakes I've made yet!
