Sweet Valentine Treats

Valentine's Day was the perfect excuse to give loved ones some sugar!

One recipe of fluffy pink buttercream icing yields infinite decorating possibilities! I made cakes and cupcakes over the weekend for several people. Wilton treat boxes from Wal-Mart were perfect for packing with cupcakes. These were piped with a star tip and topped with heart-shaped cookies from the bakery.

Pink and green marshmallow frog princes, also from Wal-Mart, looked cute perched atop mini heart-shaped cakes. I think this little guy says, "Kiss me!"

Would a rose by any other name taste as sweet? I made this variety by piping on petals with an angled tip.

I hope your Valentine's Day held some sweet surprises from someone you love!

Your cupcakes look gorgeous, Melissa. Better than bakery-bought! Sincerely, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com
