Celebrating Valentine's Day with Cupid

Meet *Cupid the Cupcake*! Isn't he a cutie?! My hubby whipped up a little batch of these last night for our early Valentine's dinner with the kiddos. Yuuuummmmmyyy!!

First he took a French Vanilla cake mix and mixed it according to the box instructions, adding one extra egg to the batter.

After filling the cupcake cups, he added chunks of Hershey's Cookies & Cream candy bar. Then he baked them according to the box directions and cooled them.

Next he made Cupid's wings using large marshmallows and pretzel sticks.

Using kitchen scissors he cut the marshmallows in half, then made 3 snips with the scissors on one side of the halves to create the *wing effect*.

Then he mounted them onto the pretzel sticks.

Next came Cupid's hair curls~made with Rice Krispies cereal.

I failed to get a photo of Vince putting on Cupid's face and hand holding the heart. He used the store-bought icing packs that come already dyed and with the decorating tip (sort of a store version of a piping bag). The hearts were gummy hearts, but you could also used foil wrapped chocolate ones. Pop Cupid's wings on the sides and your good to go!

The Cookies & Cream made a VERY yummy cupcake!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!
