Small orange topped, dark brown bottomed cup

I saw some of these on the ground. They're about the size of a nickle, and very wrinkled, and turned up at the edges. They are bright orange on the top and dark brown on the bottom. Anyone know what they are? It was growing in the vicinity of lots of Black Cherry trees. I can't find it in any mushroom book.

Orange peel fungus. :)

Cool find!

The best lessons are those learned before you wish you had known better, especially when thinking edible mushrooms.
