What is your favorite part of Valentine's Day? While the hearts, flowers, candy – oh and of course love – is all great, I want the baked goods!! There isn't much that I like better than a pretty and delicious Valentine cupcake! Give me a yummy cupcake topped with a delicious frosting and I'm a happy girl. I can hardly even type that sentence without my mouth watering a bit.
To help you get ready for Valentine's Day and bake some goodies for your loved ones, a classroom, or a Valentine's Day party we have rounded up these 17 Pretty and Delicious Valentine Cupcake Recipes. Since red and pink reign supreme on Valentine's Day, several of the recipes utilize red fruits like strawberries and cherries and we also have the reddish color of red velvet. And chocolate is a perennial favorite for Valentine's Day, so we had to add a couple of chocolatey recipes to the list.
If you're following a special diet, we even have a gluten-free vegan cupcake on the list, as well as a low-carb Paleo option. While those two recipes do look DELICIOUS, I think I'll take my cupcake full of gluten and carbs. It IS a holiday after all!
