Aren’t these little heart cupcakes the CUTEST? My mom taught me this little trick–it’s genius and SO easy! I found a bag or marbles at the dollar store and whipped these together so quickly. They’re the perfect Valentine’s Day treat!

Ingredients
  1. 1 batch of cupcakes (link to red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting below)*
  2. 1 small bag of marbles (from the dollar store!)
  3. 1 batch of frosting
Instructions
  1. Make cupcakes according to recipe directions. Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners. Spoon batter into liners, being careful not to fill each cupcake more than 1/2 full of batter. (If you fill them too full, they will loose their heart shape!)
  2. After filling the liners, place a marble between the liner and the pan. You will see the cupcake take the shape of a heart!
  3. Bake cupcakes according to recipe directions. Allow to cool completely before frosting.

    I have tried these and have found that any filled over 1/2 full lose their shape. Just a warning…I’m sure it depends on the depth of your cupcake pans đŸ™‚

    And, if u work fast, u can drop the marble in ice water and make a “crackle” marble! I haven’t done it myself, so Google or Pinterest instructions, but it’s easy enough! Fun! I may try it w the pink or red heart shape magnets from Dollar Tree!

    Wouldn’t a paper clip opened up to form a V shape work better? I was going to bake cupcakes today anyhow, now I have to try it. LOL
