Valentine “LOVE” Cupcake

LOVE Cupcakes

With Valentine’s Day approaching, I wanted to get a head start on making desserts and sharing all of them 🙂 To make the “LOVE” I melted Almond Bark white chocolate and then piped the words and heart on wax paper. I let it set up in the freezer for an hour before using it to decorate. Happy Valentine’s Day!
