happy heart cupcakes

i love it when i make things
that look familiar
but taste delicious

it is not so difficult
when making 
mock store-bought treats
for these
hostess like cupcakes
i used the recipe
i shared for 
homemade
ding dongs
found here
instead of loopdy loops
i made
loopdy hearts
from tinted royal icing
these are tiny
just one bite
so cute 
for a lunch box treat
or 
as an after dinner mint
  (just flavor your ganache or filling)
treat yourself to a
plateful!

  6. Brilliant, as always, my friend! I bet yours are infinitely more delectable than the store-bought version, and your piped-heart embellishment is simply inspired!!
