What is your favorite cupcake then?
And what is your favorite cupcake that you bake all the time at home?
I honestly can’t choose one because I love them all. Chocolate, vanilla, raspberry, strawberry… While I was browsing through lots of food blogs, one thought hit me. I also hadn’t thought of red velvet cupcakes!
And it makes sense for Valentine’s day, that deep red color.
Valentine Cupcakes Decorating Ideas
So what is the topping or frosting that you use the most?
I like to go for something safe and easy. Nothing too complicated or difficult or me because I’m not a dessert queen. And that’s what I find here in my Valentine decorating ideas below!
Easy and safe but cute cupcake decorations and useful ideas. You would forget how cute and posh one single strawberry on white frosting looks!
Making chocolate shapes or words isn’t too hard either.
I have tried it before and it really works. Plus it also looks spectacular. I have tried it before a few times and it is true, my cupcakes in the end looked absolutely smashing.
So this year for our Valentine’s day dessert I am not going for the classic tiramisu, even though both the hubs and I love that to bits. Because I want to come out of my comfort zone this time and make a couple of gorgeous looking treats thanks to the Valentine cupcakes ideas I list below!
