Valentine’s Day Cupcakes
Supplies you will need:
- Cake mix (yes, I got it on clearance at Target for 71 cents)
- Squirt bottles
- Red Food Coloring
- Muffin tray
The first step is to prepare the cake mix as directed. I have some great little bakers who love to help me make cupcakes.
Even the littlest ones can help in the kitchen.
Then I used a funnel to pour some of the batter into these squeeze bottles. Any type of squeeze bottle that you would use for ketchup or mustard would work well. My only tip is to make sure the batter is beaten enough so you don’t have little balls of batter clogging the spout.
Bake according to the package directions. This is what ours looked like before they went in the oven.
And here they are when they were done baking. Pretty cool, right?
They are pretty enough to serve as is, but I ADORE frosting, so you know I was not going to miss a chance to heap some on.
This is what you find when you cut into the swirl cupcakes. Aren’t they pretty? Make some for your sweetie this Valentine’s day.
