Valentine Treats

Saturday was Choreography Review for Makin' Music. The groups managers wanted to make treats for all the directors, so Friday night I tried to think of something to make that didn't require me to go to the store, so I started looking in the cabinet. I had strawberry cake mix and strawberry cream icing, so I decided to make valentine cupcakes. They're really easy to make. You just mix up the cake mix and pour it into the cupcake liners. Then you put a marble, or in my case, a ball of aluminum foil in the pan with the cupcakes. As they bake the ball causes the batter to indent and make a heart. Then I iced them and sprinkled red sugar on top of them. They were yummy, and everyone seemed to enjoy these Valentine treats.


  1. very you just put the ball (or whatever you have) on the outside of one side of the cupcake before it cooks????

  2. YUMMY! I know the kids liked those!! I'm impressed you had everything you needed in your cabinet. It seems like anytime I go to make something, I'm missing at least one thing that sends me to the store!!!

  3. Yes, put the ball on the outside of the cupcake and it'll cook around it to form the heart. I'm very lucky that I had the stuff in the cabinet. I've been buying up cake mix and icing that's been on sale since Christmas.
