    Valentines Day Chocolate Heart cupcakes. Cutout with small cookie cutter and fill with fresh raspberry frosting or cream.

  • Tina Martindale

    These fun cupcakes are quite easy to create! First, bake a batch of chocolate cupcakes. I used my favorite chocolate cupcake recipe, but feel free to use any recipe or box mix you prefer. The only special instructions would be to make sure to fill the liners just a bit more than you might normally (about 1/2 inch below the top of the liner), because you need to have a bit of a dome above the top edge of the liners. While the cupcakes are baking, prepare of batch of delicious Cherry Frosting. You can use the recipe below, or you could use my simple American Buttercream, or Cream Cheese frosting, and simply tint it pink with some food coloring. Canned (pre-made) frosting would work fine for these as well. Maraschino Cherry Frosting 1 cup (2 sticks) butter 4 cups powdered sugar 4 Tablespoons maraschino cherry juice 1/2 cup finely chopped maraschino cherries pinch of salt Directions~ 1. In the bowl of an electric mixer beat butter until smooth. 2. With the mixer running, Add 2 cups of powdered sugar, one cup at a time. 3. Add 4 tablespoons maraschino cherry juice, one tablespoon at a time. 4. Continue beating, and add the remaining 2 cups powdered sugar, and chopped maraschino cherries. If desired, add a drop of pink food coloring (I used Americolor electric pink). 5. Beat until fully combined. Refrigerate until ready to use. Heart Cutout Cupcake Assembly (idea source- Just Jenn Recipes) 1. Use a serrated knife to cut off the top of the cupcake, using the top of the cupcake liner as a guide. 2. Use a small heart cookie cutter to cut out a heart shape from the cupcake dome. 3. Spread frosting onto the cupcake base, in a mounded shape. 4. If desired, sprinkle the cupcake dome with powdered sugar. Place top back on cupcake and press down a bit. Recipe source- Confessions of a Cookbook Queen

This would also be useful for packing cupcakes so the frosting won't stick to the other ones.

This can be a option, just a small flower detail. Susan Martin

So THAT'S how they do it. I need to get some of the tips she mentions.

Sweet Heart Cupcakes--cute and fun! I like the frosting recipe for the maraschino cherries , make sure and add that pinch of salt---it really makes a difference. I love the color pink you get when you add the cherry juice--pretty!

the recipe...so smart to cut the top off, cut out the shape on the top, frost the cupcake and then place the top back on . some people are always thinking! ;-)

Luck o' the Cupcake: Shamrock Cut-Out Cupcakes. Chocolate Cupcake Recipe & American Buttercream Recipe. Adding 1/2 teaspoon of mint extract would be appropriate for these as well. Color the frosting light green. Can use canned frosting too.

These are SOOO yummy! I made them without the candy bar center and chocolate topping (just for ease) and WOW!
