Previously I’ve made these out of lemon cupcakes but there’s something simply stunning about red velvet!

To make these, simply overfill cupcake pans just a touch, so that they fluff over. Once cool, carefully slice off the fluffy top and then use a cookie cutter to cut out a heart. Frost the bottom cupcake and then replace the top so that the frosting peekes through the open cut-out heart.

These are beautiful little treats to give out for Valentine’s Day but they also look fabulous at a party buffet. If you’re not a big frosting fan, this is a great way to create a beautiful presentation but still have a delicious cupcake!
