Be My Valentine, Cupcake!

Valentine's Day might be next Monday, but in my family we are celebrating it all weekend long! I love special days like this and will definitely be spoiling my family with some good grub. I've got all kinds of neat ideas up my sleeve.

I'm going to start by showing off these wonderful cupcakes which I had a blast decorating at midnight the other night! One of my favorite shows right now is Cupcake Wars. I'm thankful that we only live one hour from the state of Maine and we're able to cross the border and find some neat things that we can't find here at home. Even Wal-mart in the states is different! I picked up a strawberry pink cake mix, cupcake spiral holder, cupcake papers, sprinkles, and had a blast with a fun icing decorator!

 I didn't make anything from scratch like they do on the show, but had just as much fun putting it all together and capturing the greatness that is: a cupcake! What special things are you doing for your Valentine this weekend?

Calais is the best! I'm going back in a couple weeks and hopefully will find some V-day stuff on sale for next year. The spiral holder was only $5 at Wal-mart. I will certainly be getting lots of use out of it with the kid's birthdays. I can't wait to see your mini cheesecakes! Have fun!
