Valentine X-O Cupcakes

Happy Valentine's Day to all of my lovely readers. I hope your day is filled with romantic, fraternal, puppy, friendly, sisterly, motherly, fatherly, platonic, or whatever kind of love that makes your heart sing. I'm filled with bloggerly love. Even though I'm here in South Dakota (see previous post) for Grandpa Bud's funeral, it fills me with pink and red warm fuzzies to share my recipes and my musings about real life right here on Prudence Pennywise. Thanks for reading and coming back and for making my recipes. Here's wishing much love and all of life's candy coated sweetness to all of you!

If it's not too late, here's some cute little cupcakes. I used a chocolate cupcake recipe (still not perfect-working on a getting it right to share) frosted with cream cheese icing. What makes them so cute, is the sprinkling of sugar. Hold a cookie cutter over the iced cakes and sprinkle inside the lines. I got my X-O cookie cutters from the dollar store. Swing by and pick some up. Or stay home and just look at the pictures. Either way...
Best wishes for a Happy Valentine Day to all.

Hope all things go well tomorrow. I loved learning how to use the cookie cutters for the X & O. I love learning all your little tricks. Thanks for taking the time to teach us and helping us become better in the kitchen. Happy Valentine's Day dear friend.

So sorry about losing your grandpa. You are such a good writer (and baker) and that was such a nice tribute to him.

Those cupcakes are adorable Prudy. I like how you used the cookie cutters to put the sprinkles on.

I hope things go well with the funeral.

XOXOXOXO

Great cupcakes. I haven't had time to do any V day baking. Will have to rectify this now

How cute!

Maria said...

Cute cupcakes! I hope everything is well for you and your family!

Cathy said...

Ack! Life kept me away from the computer this weekend, and I missed these! These would have been perfect for my kiddies. I might just have to be crazy and show them the XO love a few days after Valentine's Day. Maybe for President's Day, in fact!

Bridgett said...

Hope you had a great Valentine's! These are too darling, I love it!

Jack&Rosie said...

What a cute idea- it's so simple, but makes the cupcakes look even more delicious! You were missed this weekend!

vibi said...

Very nice, Prudence... I love the idea!

Hi Prudy how are you?

These cakes look so pretty and moist yum yum.

Katrina said...

What a fun way to sprinkle cupcakes. I'd have never thought of that and I have every cutter under the sun!
Having a giveaway on my blog, check it out if you'd like.
Love your blog.

Bren said...

great looking 'cakes... i like u didn't do heart shaped ones! i had a great and most beautiful Vday weekend, though it's something I don't really care to even acknowledge!

kittymama said...

I'm late to see this post but those are such cute cupcakes! If you're looking for a choc cupcake recipe, try Ina Garten's. It's fantastic and I tried at least a dozen before I found it. It's dark & rich like devil's food but not too goopy.
