Mini Valentine’s Day Cupcakes

These little babycakes are a smaller bite sized version of the larger one I made. I got a mini cupcake tin for christmas and I’ve been dying to try it out. So I thought I would save some batter and make mini ones too. These little ones are perfect to take to school. Use a small star tip to make them look like flowers on top, I think they look like carnations, and sprinkle with mini hearts!


Batch of Devils Food Cupcakes


Pour cupcake liners 3/4 full. Bake about 15-20 minutes until set. Allow to cool completely in tin before removing, you’ll want to make sure you dont squish them trying to get them out. These are small and delicate!

Pipe icing on with small star tip to make ribbons or flowers. Sprinkles with hearts and place a small fondant heart cutout on top. Send immdediately, with love. These look like a little garden of love!

Deliver some love to someone today, with a small token of affection!

    Aw, I thought your other ones were cute but these are even cuter!

    I know I need to break open the box of fondant & get to it!!! I’m sure once I give it a try I’ll be wondering what took me so long! Especially with all the encouragment.
