I don’t know about you, but once Christmas is over, my thoughts turn to my next favorite sequential holiday – Valentine’s Day.
I skip right over New Years. I think it’s too soon after Christmas for me and kind of still seems like Christmas anyway.
Since I’m already thinking about Valentine’s Day, I’m in the mood to get inspired by all the yummy treats, especially cupcakes!
Valentine’s Day Cupcake Ideas
Here are a few gorgeous cupcakes to inspire your Valentine’s Day creations. I’m not the best baker in the world, but I am going to give a couple of these a try.
On the outside, these don’t look like Valentine’s Day cupcakes, but they are filled with deliciously red cherry pie filling, for the perfect surprise!
Valentine’s Day Heart Cupcakes & Playdough!
What makes these cupcakes stand out are the heart wrappers.
I love the added touch of a red wrapper to bake in and a heart wrapper in addition to that.
I thought these Valentine’s Day Playdough Cupcakes from NoTimeForFlashCards were too cute to pass up! Obviously not edible, they fit the bill for a fun playdate in the weeks leading up to February 14th. I think they’d also be cute if you cut heart shapes in the playdough and stacked the hearts on top of each to make a heart “cupcake” tower.
The cupcake photo below doesn’t have an accompanying recipe, but it looks easy enough – any white or yellow cake mix, white frosting, and pink sprinkles with hearts! This is totally my speed. No special skills required! 🙂
