Preheat oven too 350F.
Grease muffin tins.
In a large mixing bowl mix cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, oil and cherry juice with a whisk until well incorporated.
Using 2 soup spoons, fill each muffin tin half way with chocolate cake mix batter.
Using a small teaspoon add 3 cherries from the can of pie filling. You want to add these to the centre of the cupcake so they bake inside and offer a secret surprise!
Add another spoonful of cake batter to each muffin. Be sure to spread the cake batter over the cherries so they are not exposed.

Using a frosting spatula, spread vanilla and/or chocolate icing onto each cupcake.
Top each cupcake with a Maraschino cherry and serve with ice cream.
