My husband loves loves loves white chocolate.  I don’t get it.  It’s not chocolate!  Okay, don’t get me started on that.  Since he loves white chocolate (that isn’t really chocolate), I wanted to make white chocolate hearts for him for Valentine’s Day.  They turned out cute, but a little thin.  They just weren’t as  pretty (or substantial) as I had hoped when I made them.  Since I didn’t want to waste them, I plopped them on top of a cupcake and they became the perfect addition to this cute Valentine’s Day Cupcakes.

 

Start with a cupcake

First, start by making some cupcakes.  We made yellow cake cupcakes in black cupcake wrappers.

 

The Best Buttercream Frosting - Finished

Then make a batch our our Best Buttercream Frosting.  This frosting is perfect for cupcakes and takes food coloring really well.  This super delicious frosting will take these Valentine’s Day Cupcakes to the next level, we promise!

Heart Template for White Chocolate Hearts

Now you need a couple of things in order to create your White Chocolate Hearts.  First, a template to use for creating the hearts. We made this on in Microsoft Word and then covered it with a piece of parchment paper.

 

Melt White Chocolate and put it in a squeeze bottle

Now melt your White Chocolate and put it in a small squeeze bottle or a pastry bag.

 

Make outline of heart with white chocolate

Using the template under the parchment paper as a guide, pipe on an outline for the White Chocolate Heart.

 

Fill in heart with White Chocolate

Then fill in the heart with more melted White Chocolate.

 

Smooth out White Chocolate

We used the tip of the squeeze bottle to smooth out the chocolate.  It needs to be thick enough so it won’t break when you place the heart on the frosted cupcake.

Add Sprinkles to White Chocolate Heart

 

Finally. before the White Chocolate has set, add some Valentine’s sprinkles on the top of the candy heart.

We used a Wilton 2D Decorating tip to swirl on the Buttercream Frosting.  We colored the frosting, a pretty magenta pink. To make this color we used Americolor Fushia Pink Food Coloring and a tiny tiny speck of Americolor Royal Blue Food Coloring.
