Valentine's Day Cupcakes & Cupcake Boxes
Yes, boxes of candies are nice. I think I'd rather receive this beautiful box of cupcakes for Valentine's Day. Both simple and special - this is a great gift for friends, coworkers or that certain someone. If you like the Valentine's Day card/label, you can download and print the template here!
Buttercream Frosting :
4 sticks of butter, softened
6 cups of confectioners sugar
In the kitchen aid fitted with the paddle attachment, whip the butter and sugar together for 5 minutes until it has transformed into a white fluffy frosting.
To color a soft pink, add 3 drops of red food coloring, 1/2 drop of orange, and a 1/2 drop of green. Add more red for a brighter color. The orange and green help to soften the bright pink, creating a more sophisticated color. For more icing tips, watch my cupcake decorating video.
1) With a piece of parchment paper or tissue, create a scallop along the edge by tracing around half of a small juice glass, and repeating along the paper.

TIP: Before I put the cupcakes in the box, I like to refrigerate them for an hour. The chilling makes the icing hard so it won't be damaged when you put it into the box. Then store them in the refrigerator until you give them away... or eat them.
