These are probably the sweetest looking cupcakes I have made to date. Shawn, an old friend from high school reached out to me a few weeks ago and asked me to make a special cupcake for his upcoming wedding to his lovely fiance Robin. Needless to say I was beyond flattered and happy to oblige!
Weddings are all about love. I wanted them to feeeelll the love on this cupcake. I think they did. The couple was fond of red velvet and cream cheese, so I went with those flavors, although you could go with any flavor of your choosing. I really loved how the red batter with the heart cutouts just seemed to go perfectly with one another. Sooo cute.
I am officially calling this red velvet recipe the BEST one that has come out of my oven. I especially loved how rich and moist the cake turned out. I'd tell you the recipe, but then I'd have to kill you. Hah. No really.
All you really need to accomplish this look is a sturdy cupcake and heart shaped cookie cutter (small enough to fit inside the crown of the cupcake. Simply slice the top part of the cake off (right where the cake meets the liner) and press the heart shaped cutter into the top. Push it out, and voila! Ice the cake with any frosting you love (but do it with the tops still off!) and then place the heart shaped tops back on! Dust with some powdered sugar and BOOM! The perfect cupcake for your sweetheart.
Let's not forget the delicious Oreo cake pops I made as well. Shawn saw them in an earlier post and was just dying to get some for their reception dinner.
I really hope this lovely couple loved them as much I did making them. Congrats to Shawn and Robin!
