I love cupcakes and I love Valentine’s Day. They go perfect together because I think they are like love and marriage, horse and carriage, chocolate and peanut butter or Disney Princesses and Prince Charming.
I’m a lover of all things hearts. Red hearts, pink hearts, sparkly hearts, hearts on t-shirts, Valentine’s Day cards and decorations and of course, hearts on cupcakes!
Valentine’s Day candy comes in decorated heart boxes, foil wrappers and chocolate that melts in your mouth. Or you can send your valentine little candy conversation hearts, an exquisite cake and let’s not forget some chocolate dipped strawberries! But for me, cupcakes are the best sweetest treat for Valentine’s Day. They come in their own gift wrapper, are the perfect size and nobody has to share, you get your own sweet little cake!
