I love walking through the stores this time of year because so many stores pair cupcakes and hearts in their Valentine’s decor items. So far I have spotted cuppies in the Valentine’s sections at Walmart, Target, Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, Christmas Tree Shop and Kohl’s. So a big thank you to all the stores who join cupcakes and hearts this holiday season. You make it so much more special for the cupcake obsessed. All Things Cupcake appreciates you!

I always try to make mail and packages look as visually appealing as possible. I have a large collection of washi tape, stickers, and stamps that I use to decorate. As soon as I saw on Lindsay Letter’s website the cupcake stamp I knew I would have to add the stamp to my collection! I love simple, yet detailed cupcake stamp that costs $25.00 and would be packaging some Valentine’s Day cupcakes!
I don’t know why I’ve never thought of this, but I love it. These white chocolate shavings make a positively elegant cupcake garnish! This photo is courtesy of foodie photographer Esther Fox. And just in case you’ve never played with chocolate shavings before, it is super easy! Just use your vegetable peeler. Then, the next time you go to peel carrots, you’ll have an irresistible cupcake craving!
Good heavens, would you look at these things? Talk about sumptuous! These chocolate covered cherry cupcakes were created by Cupcake Anarchy, the Milwaukee cupcakery that likes to break all the rules. (They also offer beer & bacon cupcakes and honey whiskey cupcakes.)
If you are anything like me, you love to try new recipes but worry that recipes found are the internet may not be high quality. Never fear, All Recipes is here! Check out this recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes. It has 4 1/2 stars out of 5 and has been review by 870 bakers! I love reading the reviews and seeing how some people modify the recipes for dietary concerns and taste preferences. Sounds like a good one to try out this weekend!
This cupcake makes me smile. I’ve seen rainbows on top of cupcakes before. But this is the first time I can remember seeing a rainbow in a cupcake. This pic was taken by Jonathan Syer, who loves to photograph cupcakes! (Who doesn’t?)
