  1. Heat grill and oil grates. Generously sprinkle each pineapple slice with Honey Vanilla fruit griller on both sides. Grill over medium-heat 3-4 minutes per side or until nice grill marks form. Remove from grill and set aside.
  2. Heat oven to 350°. Grease a jumbo muffin tin and place a pineapple ring in the bottom of each cup. Trim pineapple to fit, if necessary. Add a maraschino cherry in the middle of each ring for a lovely presentation.
  3. Prepare yellow cake batter using package instructions. Pour cake batter into muffin cups 1/2 - 2/3 full. Bake according to package instructions. Cupcakes are done when toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  4. Let cupcakes cool completely. Place a sheet pan over the muffin tin and flip to release cupcakes. Top with warm honey for a sweet glaze.
