Quick and Easy Valentine's Day Cupcakes

It's almost Valentine's Day, and you are probably ready to create a simple, but beautiful edible treat with your kids. One thing that can never go wrong is cupcakes! We once again took to this standby option to help celebrate the holiday of love.

My daughter is the one who actually made these cupcakes (big surprise, huh?) She is an excellent baker, and she is rather handy with the frosting, as well. We started with the basic cake mix, and poured the batter into some decorative cupcake liners you can buy at your local Walmart – Wilton has an amazing selection right now.

After the cupcakes were baked and cooled, she used her frosting tip and a plastic storage bag to pipe the frosting. She chose a cherry pre-made version, and it was surprisingly tart and sweet! She finished the d├ęcor with some red sprinkles and a toothpick paper decoration. Aren't they sweet?

If you choose to create these for a Valentine's Day treat, you can play around with frosting flavors, cake mixes, and even the toppings. How would you customize your cupcakes?
