Birthday Cupcakes

My mom gave me this fun cupcake tree for my birthday since I love to bake. Megan and I made a batch of chocolate cupcakes and a batch of red velvet cupcakes to fill all the spots (with a lot of extras!) They ended up being more Valentine's than birthday cupcakes, but I do like pink!

I made my best buttercream frosting yet, and we just did pink with white accents. I had a fun variety of Valentine's sprinkles from last year, so we went sprinkle crazy!

These are shaped like red lips.

Some pretty multicolored hearts:

This one is my favorite, with the heart dotting the "i." How very elementary school, but so cute!

The cupcake tree was a fun excuse to be creative with cupcakes instead of cookies. It will be fun to use if I host any parties or showers in the future. Everyone loves adorable cupcakes!

Okay, I'm not even kidding about you giving professional bakers a run for their money (or cupcakes, tee-hee!) You're so talented, Heidi!!
