Valentine Desserts: Cupcake Ideas

Valentine’s Day is the perfect time of year to brush off your dusty apron and get baking some cupcakes for your sweets! It’s all about the love and thought behind your baked works of art, so why not try something new? Your loved ones will love you just as much if your culinary creations are photo worthy– and I’ll bet they will still taste amazing! Here are some of my favorite Valentine cupcake decorating ideas. Get inspired!

What a simple touch….tie a ribbon around the base of your cupcake for some festive flair! This cupcake has no icing, instead it is dusted with powdered sugar. This fabulous treat was (and the recipe) found on BHG.

This sweet cupcake design if simple enough for anyone, have your kiddos help you! Simple decorate your cupcakes with conversation hearts! For a yummy cupcake recipe visit Bakerella, she is the cupcake goddess behind this creation!

Again, a simple ribbon tied around the cupcake is such a simple touch. The roses on top of these cupcakes were made by rolling colored fondant. Check out Bakerella for the simple cupcake decorating steps and make them yourself!

I hope you feel inspired to whip up some sweets this valentines day! What do you plan on making for your loved ones?

    I really like the top one with the powdered sugar. Very simple but looks delicious. The ones with the roses are gorgeous, too! Looks like it would be fun to do with kids. :)

    These are perfect for a “red” bridal shower, with a rose theme!

    Thank you for the wonderful ideas! I just made a marshmallow fondant to create your beautiful rose topped cupcakes. I am hosting a Womens Valentine Celebration and Tea for our church. Also, thank you for the link to Bakerella, there are some amazing ideas there also! Looking forward to future ideas from your website! Thanks again.
