What child doesn’t love cupcakes? Our favorite Valentines Day recipes for cupcakes include cupcakes made from confetti cake mix, available in your grocer’s baking aisle. Simply prepare the batter according to the directions on the package, then pour into cupcake papers and bake for about 15 minutes per batch. The cakes will turn a golden brown on top when they are finished, and a toothpick inserted into the center of each cake will come out clean. Continue by decorating the tops of the cakes with pink frosting, and top with either a strawberry or a candy cupid which can be found in most party supply stores. This is loved by kids of all ages, but is especially great for children’s parties in school or at home.
Our favorite Valentines Day recipe for beverages includes this fruity spritzer. It is easily made with just a two liter bottle of ginger ale, and a gallon of your favorite fruit punch. Simply mix the two together in a large punch bowl. Your local party supply store will carry ice trays that make heart shaped ice cubes. Simply fill a few of these with fruit punch and freeze for a day or two ahead of time. Float them in the punch just before serving.
Sweetheart Black Forest Cake
If you’re looking for the perfect Valentines Day recipe for a dessert for your candlelit dinner with your sweetheart, then you can’t go wrong with this amazingly rich Black Forest Sweetheart Cake. Simply purchase a black forest cake mix and prepare according to directions. After you have mixed the batter, pour half into a bundt pan, then lay down a layer of sliced strawberries. Pour the remaining batter over the strawberries and bake according to directions. When the cake has completely cooled, remove from pan, and frost with vanilla frosting. Place several whole strawberries around the top of the cake. A little known fact about strawberries is that they are a natural aphrodisiac – perfect for this holiday of love!
