“Love Bug” Valentine’s Cupcake From Nicole Emmons Hey! Cupcake Girl



-Your Favorite Cupcake Recipe in Red Bake Cups

-White Frosting tinted RED

-Chocolate Wafer Cookies

-Red Frosting Writer

-Black Frosting Writer


-Large Gumdrops


Prepare batter and fill bake cups about two-thirds full.

Bake and cool your cupcakes. 

Time to assemble!!!

Frost the base of cupcake.

Cut the Chocolate Wafer Cookie in half and place on each side of the cupcake to make wings.

Using the Red Frosting Writer, draw dots on each half of the wafer cookie to resemble spots.

Add a gumdrop to the center of the cupcake for the head.

Draw on the eyes and mouth with the Black Frosting Writer.

Break off pieces of pretzels and use as the antennas.

The “Love Bug” Cupcakes are complete.  Enjoy!

 “Heart on Fire”


Fresh Strawberries medium to large in size

80% proof plus Alcohol (I recommend Bacardi Rum)


Core out the center of a Strawberry, fill with Alcohol and light the liquid with a match.

The alcohol burns off and you will be delighted with a light show.  What’s left is a yummy flavored strawberry to top your cupcake.

And as I always say: “Your Cupcake Our Canvas!”
