With Christmas over and the all the holiday decor put away it’s time to look ahead toward Valentine’s Day. I love Valentine’s Day. It’s fun, frivolous and festive! My husband, on the other hand, despises Valentine’s Day, swearing up and down that it’s a “made up holiday.” Ok, fine. Maybe he has a point, but hey, if I can bake sweets, eat candy til my hearts content and create fun Valentine crafts with the kids it’s an ok holiday for me!

Seriously though, Valentine’s Day is about love and having fun with those you care about. What is sweeter than sharing something sweet, like these Valentine cupcakes with a loved one? They are adorable. Better yet, you can use our homemade cupcake recipe or a box of store bought cake mix if you prefer. Same with the frosting. I used store bought frosting for the Valentine Cupcakes and the kids didn’t complain.

These cupcakes are easy to make and you need only one special item, this mini heart cookie cutter, it would be fun to use other shapes for other holidays as well!

    My 2 & 3 year old boys will love this today! Thank you! I’m having fun going through all of your posts. I’ve just found your blog and I’m loving everything! Bless you all for taking the time to do this. Some of us are just so wiped out we’ve lost all of our imagination for the time being. Thank you for helping us get through the rough spots with your ideas, tips and recipes.
