Valentine's Day Cupcakes
St. Valentine's Day will be here before you know it, so I thought we'd better start getting prepared. If you have to take cupcakes to a school party or other function, Valentine's Day cupcakes are pretty simple. I love how the ones on the left are decorated to look like conversation hearts.
Also, a company called Roundabouts Cupcake Sleeves makes wraparounds for cupcakes that look like the Valentine cards you find for kids in stores.
To make an elegant cupcake (maybe a white cupcake with a red rose in the center), you can buy pre-made icing flowers at Wilton's online store or at any number of other suppliers. Often grocery stores or craft stores will carry them at this time of the year.
Another fun idea if your child takes part in candy or card exchanges at school is to make your own candy wrappers. At Alenka's Printables, there are some adorable wrappers made to go over existing regular sized and miniature candy bars. You can edit the wrappers, and they're free!
