Heart Cupcakes

Say “I Love You” With Heart Cupcakes

Heart Cupcake 1Decorating Heart Cupcakes is really very easy! Although, a better description of my heart cupcakes would be cupcakes decorated with hearts.

I enjoy making special treats for my family that reflect how much I love them. What better way to do that, than to make cupcakes decorated with hearts.

I believe in saying “I love you” daily, so it does not require a special holiday to make these cupcakes for my family, but they were a perfect expression of my love on Valentine’s Day.


Where To Begin

Cupcakes ~ PlainSince this article is about decorating the cupcakes, we are going to start with the cupcakes already baked, cooled and ready for decorating.

One note about cooking your cupcakes, remember, if you will be using miniature cupcakes, they require about 8 min. to bake.

Use a toothpick to determine exact length of baking time. When a toothpick poked in the center of the cupcake comes out clean, the cupcake is ready.



Tips for Baking White Cupcakes

When I am baking white cupcakes, I only use the egg whites and discard the yokes. This makes the cupcake a purer white color. If your recipe calls for 3 whole eggs, use 4 egg whites instead.


Ingredients I Used to Make My Heart Cupcakes

  • Large Cupcakes ~ White
  • White Miniature Cupcakes
  • Strawberry Frosting
  • Candy or Sanding Sugar for Decoration
