In this week’s special Valentine’s Day edition of Mad Genius Tips, F&W’s Justin Chapple demonstrates how to create cute, heart-shaped cupcakes using a muffin pan and marbles. Here, five delicious pink and white cupcake recipes to use when you try out this adorable trick.
1. Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes
For a bright and beautiful pink, swirl strawberry jam into vanilla frosting.
2. Take 5 Carrot Cupcakes
These terrifically moist and carroty cupcakes are topped with classic cream cheese frosting.
3. Angel Food Cupcakes with Raspberry Swirl
For a super low-fat cupcake version of a jelly doughnut, fill vanilla-flecked angel food cupcakes with an easy homemade raspberry jam.
4. Coconut Flower Cupcakes
These darling coconut flour cupcakes are topped with a creamy vanilla bean frosting. Shredded coconut enhances the coconut flavor and adds extra texture to every bite.
