Preparation steps

1.
Preheat the oven to 190°C (170 fan) | 375°F | gas 5 and line a 12-hole cupcake tin with paper cases.
2.
Combine the almonds, cocoa, flour, sugar, butter and eggs in a bowl and whisk together for 2 minutes or until smooth.
3.
Fold in the drained cherries and chocolate and divide the mixture between the paper cases.
4.
Transfer the tin to the oven and bake for 15 - 20 minutes. Test with a wooden toothpick, if it comes out clean, the cakes are done. Transfer the cakes to a wire rack and leave to cool completely.
5.
To make the topping, whip the cream with the icing sugar until it forms soft peaks. Spoon the cream into a piping bag fitted with a large star nozzle and pipe a large rosette on top of each cake.
6.
Top each cake with two cherry halves, a drizzle of syrup from the morello cherry jar and a sprinkling of chocolate curls.
