Valentine Day Cupcake Decorating Ideas
Making a Valentine day cupcake for the one you love is a delicious gift that I am sure will be appreciated - I know I would !!
Plus there is the added advantage that we never make just one cupcake so there is more than enough to share!
I love decorating cupcakes and Valentine cupcakes are very easy to do. It can be as simple as adding a fondant heart or even a red foil bought chocolate heart to an everyday cupcake.
I have been slowly adding to my cupcake decorating ideas pages. You can find ideas from weddings to baby showers, Halloween to Easter by clicking here.
Valentine chocolate cupcakes are a great way to show your friends you care. You can even get together to make and decorate a batch, I'm sure you will have lots of laughs remembering past loves!
On this page I am showing you simple but effective ideas to decorate my chocolate and vanilla cupcakes recipe, this is a quick and easy recipe and on that page you will find a lot more ideas on how to decorate cupcakes.
I have used ready to roll fondant to top some of the cakes but I have first put a thin layer of buttercream or chocolate ganache - this smooths out any bumps in the cake top and adheres the icing to the cupcakes.
Other cakes I have used my chocolate buttercream recipe which has white chocolate, vanilla, hazelnut etc variations. I have also used my chocolate glaze which is allowed to cool then beaten to thicken then piped generously on top. All these recipes can be found in my fillings and frostings section.
These cupcake decorating ideas can be applied to many other occasions, bridal shower, baby showers, wedding anniversaries and birthdays.
