Black Forest Cupcakes

Ingredients: (serves 4)
15 oz can pitted cherries
1/4 cup caster sugar
2 tsp cornflour
4 double chocolate chip cupcakes
1 tbs kirsch
1 cup double cream
1 oz Cadbury Flake bar, crumbled

Drain the cherries and reserve the syrup. Combine the syrup, sugar and cornflour in a saucepan over high heat. Bring to the boil. Cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes or until sauce boils and thickens. Remove from heat and set aside for 2 minutes to cool slightly.
Use a small serrated knife to split each cupcake crossways into 3 layers. Place the bottom layer of each cupcake on serving plates. Brush with a little of the kirsch. Top with half the cream, then half the cherries. Continue layering with remaining cupcake, kirsch, cream and cherries. Drizzle over the cherry syrup and sprinkle with Flake to serve.
