Valentine Cupcakes with an Edible Topper

Sharing is caring!

These are so ridiculously easy, but pretty stinkin’ cute at the same time.


My favorite combination!


I started with a $1 bag of gummy hearts and pretzel rods.  Just push the pretzel
into the bottom of the heart and then set them aside for later.

Bake, frost and sprinkle your cupcakes!  I used a 1M tip for the frosting- it’s my go-to tip for cupcakes! At this point you could just leave them as is, if you wanted!

But I took the pretzel rod and pushed it down through the center of the
frosting until the heart looked like it was balancing right on top!

Boxed them up and they’re ready to go!  I made some for my daughter’s class,
2 6-packs for her principal and secretary and there’s an extra dozen or so that
I’ll set in the faculty room, just to get them out of my house.  I’m generous like that.
