Easy Valentine Cupcakes: Cupcake Tuesday

By February 1, 2011January 4th, 2012Cupcakes, Holidays, Valentine's Day, Valentine's Day Cupcakes

Welcome to Cupcake Tuesday! I’m so glad to have you! If you are new, you can find all my cupcake designs and recipes on the Cupcake Heaven page.

Wow! Did you see all the amazing cupcakes last week? 21 entries!! I was so excited to see them all! Today I have another quick and easy Valentine Cupcake for you. Just by adding a little Wilton Sparkle Gel to your decorator bag, you can make regular frosting look fancy.

To create the striped frosting, simply add the Sparkle Gel to the inside of the bag, I added 2 stripes of each color. Add the frosting and then squeeze out some of the frosting until the colors start to flow. I used the #1M Wilton tip.

Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be the same without a little chocolate. These Valentine Cupcakes start with a chocolate cake mix, add some chocolate frosting, a few sprinkles on the side and some fun chocolate lips. I bought the lips at Albanese Confectionery Store, but you might be able to find something similar at Walmart.

The large heart sprinkles came from Wilton and the hearts with the center cut out came from Bake It Pretty. The pink sprinkles are also from Wilton.

Disclaimer: I received products from Wilton. As always my opinions are my own.

Don’t forget to enter to win a $100 Home Depot Gift Card! Ends Friday, February 3rd.

Now it’s your turn…show off your cupcake creations! I’d appreciate a link back and be sure to check out the other cupcakes!
