Strawberry Valentine Cupcakes

Valentine Strawberry CupcakesThese strawberry cupcakes are not new to Pennies on a Platter.  In fact, they are probably the favorite cupcake in our household.  I first made them a few years ago for Ben’s graduation party where they were a huge hit.  Since then, they have made an appearance in my oven quite a few times.  This week was no exception.  After making the heart shaped cookies (see previous post), I couldn’t resist but to also make miniature hearts to adorn the top of our favorite cupcakes.

I brought these to our neighbor’s Superbowl party.  Since the Bears fell short in making it to the big game, and I could care less about either team, I decided I wasn’t in the mood to bring something with a football theme.  I was over that.  Instead, it was more fun to bring a little girlyness (I make up words all the time) to the party and speed up the arrival of Valentine’s Day.

  3. My husband was not a happy camper about the Bears not making it to the Super Bowl, either! We grew up in Northwest Indiana and my husband is a HUGE Bear’s fan! (Which he catches plenty of grief for, since we now live in Indianapolis…and have been here for almost 10 years!)
