Maraschino Cherry Buttercream Recipe. Silky sweet buttercream studded with bright red jewel toned maraschino cherries. Truly delicious.
Drain your cherries very well over a strainer.
After draining the cherries lay them out onto a paper towel to absorb any additional surface juice. Pat lightly.
Mince the cherries as finely as you can, as you can see from my photos some of the pieces are still on the bigger side. The cherries squish and move as you try to cut them so do the best you can.
When it comes time to add the cherries to the buttercream fold them in by hand rather than using the mixer. Folding them in will keep the pieces juicy and plump. Using the mixer will smoosh the cherry pieces.
