Here is a "cuppycake" that is easy to make, easy to do and "SUPER CUTE" !!   My daughter the Cupcake Queen chose this one...It came form a discount book we found somewhere in our travels ! LOL

The book is 100 Best Cupcake recipes.  This cute Chocolate Sweetheart Cupcakes recipe requires only three items plus ingredients to prepare the box mix..  Great for the young ladies working on their baking skills.

So you will need : A chocolate cake mix, (plus the ingrediants to prepare it), 1 container vanilla frosting, and 3 tablespoons seedless raspberry jam.   A mini heart shape cookie cutter.

Follow instructions for bakiing your cake and spoon into muffin cups filling them 2/3 full.  Bake required time and let cool.

While they are cooling mix the 3 TBSP. jam into the frosting.

Cut off rounded tops of the cupcakes with serrated knife....then with a mini heart shape cookie cutter cut shape from the top of the cupcake you just cut off......

Spread the frosting mixture over the cupcake bottoms,,,,,replace the top,,,, then gentley fill the heart shape with a little more frosting......We garnished ours with red sugar sprinkles and a dusting of powdered sugar!!

They were easy and fun and we were very pleased with how they looked when finished...

Hope your Valentines Day is "PINK" a licious !!!!

ps...This is the book in case you come across it in YOUR travels !!

Until next time....hope you enjoy
