Heart Frosting and Decor


  • 1 can Pillsbury vanilla frosting

  • Natural red food coloring or 1/2 cup frozen strawberries

  • Dark Chocolate chips

  • Fresh Strawberries

  • Pipe bag, medium round nosel, and mini round nosel


  1. Mix the frosting and food coloring until you get the color you like, pink or red- up to you, or you can heat up 1/2cup frozen strawberries and use a fine strainer to push all the juices into the frosting and use a hand mixer to whip it up for 3 minutes

  2. Melt chocolate

  3. Slice fresh strawberries in half

  4. Dip the top of the cupcake in chocolate covering the whole top

  5. Grab a strawberry and dip it half way then place on the right top side of the cupcake

  6. Repeat till all cupcakes are complete, let chocolate harden

  7. Put frosting in pipe bag and pipe the frosting into a heart shape next to the strawberry

  8. Put the cupcakes in the freezer for about 15 minutes

  9. Take cupcakes out of the freezer one at a time

  10. In a small pipe bag put a small amount of melted chocolate (should be left over from earlier and slightly cooler by now)

  11. Make sure you have a paper towel under the tip of the nosel so chocolate doesn't go everywhere and keep it more at an up right angle

  12. VERY carefully pipe a small heart on the frosting heart, you don't have to squeeze the bag it should come out in a flow the second its pointed downward

  13. Repeat the process with the rest of the cupcakes till they're all done

Story behind the recipe:

This is SUCH a FUN project! Often on Valentine's day you want to go all out and make something really special, right? But then you spend so many hours trying to do that, and by the time you're done you're most likely frustrated and unhappy with the result, not to mention tired, right? Well this one doesn't require you to do that, but you still get an impressive, special, tasty, unique result.

This is designed to make your life easier, and make you feel like you get special treats like everyone else. You literally cannot say you got this at a store because no one carries allergy friendly treats like this. The cupcake is a pre-made mix, the frosting is already done, you really have minimal effort and the effort you do have to put in is pretty much all the fun stuff. However, you still put in enough effort for it to be something special.

It's even more of a fun project with a friend or your loved one. Put on some music, or a romantic/inspiring movie/show, take pictures and videos of your fun experience, and just HAVE FUN. If you take pictures, be sure to tag or DM us we would love to see your fun! How do you like this idea? Comment below.
