On the subject of Valentine’s Day, I have to share this very sad attempt to make Valentine cupcakes for my daughter’s class party, based on a hot tip I got off of Pinterest. The whole idea is to put marbles outside of the cupcake liner, to make the cupcakes bake in a heart-ish shape. Here’s what it’s supposed to look like:

Valentine Heart Cupcakes

If I weren’t concerned about a bunch of second graders choking on these things, I would leave the marbles alone and call them “bejeweled.” Who doesn’t like a cyclops Valentine cupcake?

Happy Valentine’s Day!
