Valentine Cupcakes Part 2

You just can not have Valentine's Day Dinner without some kind of dessert. 
RIGHT?!
 I absolutely LOVE strawberries and chocolate 
{Who doesn't!!!!}
 Well, I didn't have strawberries to dip so the next best thing was
  a strawberry cake mix and since I have been wanting  to try out the swirl frosting, it worked out perfect!
(plus it saved me some money and a trip to the store)

 OK, so maybe that isn't what it's really called, but, that's what I call it!
so swirl frosting is what I did! 

 I have seen this idea all over Pinterest. 
 AND
I am here to tell you it is so easy...you can't mess this up!

Make and bake your cupcakes according to the directions.  When I use a cake mix, I "jazz" it up a little 
by adding 1 c. of sour cream, 1 c. cream (instead of water)

 If you have cute Valentine cupcake liners use  them!

Buy some frosting or make your own.  My go recipe is from Martha Stewart!  Buttercream Frosting Recipe

Get a glass out.  Put a baggie inside of it, and then fold the edges over the top of the glass. 

 All I did was let the red food coloring run down the sides of the baggie and then add the frosting! 

When the bag is filled with frosting remove it from the glass, twist the top so the frosting can't come out, and then cut the tip off!

Pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes...add the sprinkles...and you've got some super cute Valentine Cupcakes!

Ooh, and so yummy too!



and perfect for Valentine's Day!
Love it!
