Sweet Cupid Cutie Cupcakes


You will need:
  • A cupcake (baked from your favorite recipe)
  • Pink- or peach-tinted frosting
  • Large marshmallow
  • Thin pretzel stick
  • Crisped rice cereal (a handful)
  • Decorators' gel
  • Candy heart
Preparing your Cupid Cutie:
  1. Frost a cupcake with pink- or peach-tinted frosting.

  2. Sweet Cupid Cupcake - Step 2 For wings, use kitchen shears to cut a large marshmallow in half vertically, then snip each half widthwise a few times for a feathery look. Press a thin pretzel stick against the sticky side of each marshmallow half, then stick the pretzels into the cupcake.

  3. Press a handful of crisped rice cereal along the top of the cupcake for Cupid's curly locks, then add a decorators' gel mouth and eyes. Finally, set a candy heart in place and pipe on frosting fingers, if you like.

Tonight was the experiment round. Tomorrow afternoon the neighborhood kids are getting together to make these among other Valentine goodies. Check back this weekend for the results!
By the way, JJ is doing much better. He wants to try to go to school tomorrow for at least a half day. Thanks for all the prayers and get better wishes!
