Add some stuffing to the cherry. Secure the last stitch and sew the top shut. This is where you can sew the cherry to the frosting. Secure, knot and hide your tail.
Sewing Frosting to CupCake Side: Stuff your cupcake with polyester fiberfill. You can add some potpourri, rocks or sand for added stability and weight. I added some liquid potpourri to my fiberfill. Once you have completed stuffing your cupcake, align the side and frosting however you want it to look. Sew the pieces together. Secure, knot and hide your tail.
