6 Cupcake recipes for Valentine’s Day: Create homemade sweet treats

See also

Instead of buying your sweetheart or your children a bakery or ice cream cake, why not create delicious, decorative whimsical cupcakes as a sweet treat to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

You can create cupcakes inspired by our children’s favorite movie, like Disney’s Frozen or something whimsical like a strawberry milkshake in the summertime. Or create a better version of a childhood favorite by making Twinkie cupcakes with buttercream frosting. Or if you are not up to baking cupcakes from scratch, whip up some Twinkie cupcakes with pink cherry frosting.

The possibilities are endless and you can enjoy a sweet treat with your family or host a Valentine’s Day party for your children and serve up some delicious and fun cupcakes.
