Valentine Heart Cupcakes

There’s something about red and pink and white food put together that just makes my mouth water. I think every treat should be those colors!!! Strawberries and cream, raspberries and white chocolate. It’s just so romantic and girly.  So if you’re looking for something like that, this will more than suffice! These Red Velvet Valentine Heart Cupcakes  with a cream cheese center are both easy to make and easy on the lips!

 

What You’ll Need:

1 box Red Velvet Cake mix (or recipe from scratch)

Cream Cheese Frosting (recipe to follow)

1 Bake & cool your cupcakes

2. Carefully slice the tops off with a knife and place them in the same arrangement as they are on the rack so that you know what top fits to what cupcake bottom when you reattach them.

3. Use a small cookie cutter to cut out the shape of a heart

4. Pipe your frosting onto the cupcakes and keep away from the edges so it doesn’t spill over the sides when you place the tops back on.

5. Carefully place your tops back on and push them down enough that some of the frosting fills up the heart.
