Aren’t cupcakes so fun?! I decided to make my chocolate cupcake recipe a little more special for the little valentines in my life. These valentine sprinkle cupcakes would be perfect for a fun kids valentine party or I bet the kids would just love to hand one out to each of their classmates.
I started off making my delicious Perfect Chocolate Cupcake recipe and topped them with some delicious buttercream frosting. I cut out a small heart out of construction paper and laid it on top of my icing. I then sprinkled the sprinkles and took the paper off for an empty heart space that was free of sprinkles. Then I used some red gel icing I found at my local craft stores and filled it in. Simple and so pretty!
For a more sophisticated looking cupcake I piped my buttercream frosting with a 1M tip to get a nice high peak of icing. I added heart sprinkles to the top for another yummy treat! These would work great for a fun sweetheart party. Place them in a clear plastic cup and tie them with a ribbon for a fun gift!
