14 Days of Valentine - Day 13

Yummy! Food! Here's the kind of cake-y part of Ryan's Valentine's day gift! These are gigantic over-sized yellow cupcakes (Purchased undecorated from Whole Foods because I don't own a ginormous cupcake pan!) that I adopted, claimed as my own, and then decorated! I used Cherry Flavored Red Fondant from Satin Ice and Bright Pink Buttercream fondant from a company that I can never remember! (I'll try to take note the next time I'm at the cake store buying fondant!)
Honestly, these were just as easy as they look! I rolled out the fondant, cut 3 scalloped circles, 'I', 'U', and a scalloped heart with cookie cutters, and went crazy with pearl dust on any red piece of fondant. In case you're wondering, the frosting underneath is homemade cream cheese (leftover from a carrot cake I made recently) and yes, I did accidentally stab the "I" cupcake with my thumb when I moved it. I was not impressed with myself for that one! I know that they are super simple, but my love for the hubby is pretty straightforward!

Here's the scoop:
1) You must become a follower, and stick around until the 15th (when I draw).
2) Comment each day to get an entry for a fabulous prize! It's the perfect gift for anyone!
3) I will have a special bonus post to get you an additional entry (or two, or three) sometime in the 14 day countdown, so be on the lookout!


  1. I am sure Ryan would eat them even if they are pretty.

  2. yum! i'm sure ryan loved this - even the cupcakes are "refurbished" hihihi - great concept tho!
