Cupcakes for Heart Day
So I know I said I was going to post a cake, but given our food budget (I won't go on about the economy since everyone else won't stop yacking about it), my active young children and limited supplies...I decided cupcakes were a more realistic decision. I did however cut out a heart shaped mini cake from the leftover batter. I'll have to wait and see if I have enough "frosting from the can" leftover to make it pretty. Hopefully I will! I prefer to make my frosting and cake so this stuff never tastes as good to me, but to satisfy my creative urges it does just fine.
These are chocolate because I had to have chocolate at the time. I think I'm over it now. I used a star tip to do the icing and found some valentine's sprinkles from a previous year. I also used conversation hearts. I don't like the way they taste, but they are my favorite "theme" for Valentine's Day decorating in general.
I wanted to make Sacred Heart images out of fondant but didn't have any fondant sooo yeah...you've gotta work with what you've got sometimes!
Also I am not a photographer and do not claim to be. This is my attempt at making it look more appetizing...but, in general, I really stink at taking pictures.
I hope you have a blessed Valentine's Day!
Baking and Loving the Lord,
