I saw this idea on Pinterest, and even though cupcakes aren’t part of my New Year healthy eating regime, a treat now and then keeps things real, and this looked like fun, and besides Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Really it was kind of a science in the kitchen experience…really.
All you need is a cake mix, a can of pop, some marbles, muffin liners, and a muffin pan. No oil- no eggs. I used Cherry Chip Mix, Faygo Red Pop, Disney Princess muffin liners and little balls of foil…cause I’ve lost my marbles….
Any way, as you can see they turned out pretty good. They do look like hearts for the most part. Maybe some look a little more like Pac-Man heads.
I iced them with a cream cheese frosting, and added a sprinkling of coconut, which I would have tinted pink if I had had any or if I wasn’t afraid that they already contain a dangerous level of red food coloring.
I’m no food stylist, but there you have it, a beautiful pin on Pinterest interpreted by me.
Please Note-While I am pretty good at channeling my inner seven year old this would have been even more fun with some little girls to keep me company.
