Cute & Easy Valentine's Day Cupcakes

Hello sweet friends!
I can't believe I have made four different types of cupcakes in the past six days.
It seems like I was on a long cupcake making break and it felt good cover my counter top
with cupcake liners and sprinkles again.

Last weekend I made cupcakes for our little Super Bowl get together.  I didn't really care
who won since the Steelers weren't playing, but it was a great excuse to make mini cupcakes!


Earlier this week I made mini paint chip heart Valentine's Day cupcakes.  They turned out so
sweet.  You can see them here. And last night I made Minecraft cupcakes for a friend, but
I forgot to take photos! Today I decided to make some cute little hearts with Wilton Candy
Melts.  I had so much fun making them I added a few X's and O's too.

These cupcake toppers are so easy to make!  I just melted a few candy melts in the 
microwave, poured them into a Ziploc sandwich bag and cut a small hole in one of the corners.  
Then I piped the hearts onto wax paper.  I let them sit for about 30 minutes before peeling 
them off the wax paper and placing them on the cupcakes.  They are fragile, so be careful!

For the cupcakes I simply doctored up a box mix of Devil's Food cake and topped them 
vanilla buttercream and sprinkles.  You can find my favorite buttercream recipe here.

I hope your Valentine's Day is full of love and chocolate!
