Edible Valentines for your sweetheart!
All you need are cupcakes, strawberries, and a steady hand for these. They were a hit at the Valentine's day party I made them for. I think the chocolate strawberries made them extra appealing.

After the cupcakes were cool, I frosted them with pink and white frosting. Just solid colors. Then I topped them with the chocolate-covered strawberries. I found that some of the berries were so big that I had to adjust them quite a bit so they would fall off.
Now for the fun part...
I decorated the cupcakes using the frosting baggies, usually starting with the strawberries.
(It says "All You Need is Love")
After I got the hang of using the baggies, I tried lots of different patterns and combinations of frosting. For the cupcakes that I ran out of strawberries for, I just made them match the others so they looked like I didn't just for get to buy extra berries!
The creamy frosting was great to use because it didn't get crunchy and dry. The cupcakes were sitting out for quite awhile before I delivered them, and they were still perfect!
