I was listening to a radio programme today that was talking about how a lot of what we taste is down to smell rather than actual taste. This is very true; one of the reasons that we can't taste food very well when we have a cold is because our nose is all bunged up. Anyway, my point to this this little tidbit of information is to say how strongly scented these cupcakes are of almonds. They entice you as soon as you open the cake tin lid, and you are hit with the taste of almonds immediately. The cherries don't give off quite as sweet an aroma, so they appear later, and cut through some of the sharp flavours. A great treat, especially in nice sunny weather.
