Ingredients:

24 red velvet cupcakes, baked and cooled
powdered sugar
cream cheese icing (recipe follows)
Valentine's-themed sprinkles
Valentine's-themed cupcake liners
Valentine's-themed picks
1/2 cup chocolate chips/morsels

Directions:

Bake cupcakes according to package or recipe directions. Let them cool (preferably overnight). 


For Cupcake Design #1:

Cut a small heart shape from a piece of paper. Lay the heart on top of the cupcake. Using a sifter, sift (or sprinkle) powdered sugar over the entire surface of the cupcake. Remove the paper heart. That's it! You're done!!

For Cupcake Design #2:

Make cream cheese icing (recipe below). Fill a cake decorating bag (or gallon-size freezer bag) with icing. Cut 1" off corner of bag. Squeeze icing into a circle on surface of cupcake, build up while swirling (watch the above video to see how this is done). Add sprinkles and a Valentine's-themed pick.

For Cupcake Design #3:

Melt 1/2 cup of chocolate chips in microwave or stovetop. Pour into a candy decorating bottle (found near candy molds at craft store). Draw fancy heart shapes onto a piece of wax paper (watch the video above). Place hearts in freezer for 5 minutes to harden. 

Swirl icing on top of cupcake. Add a chocolate heart. Enjoy!!
