valentines cupcakeIt wouldn't be Valentine's Day without sweet treats. And sweet treats wouldn't be Valentine's Day-y in they weren't decorated with adorable red hearts.

If you want to make a little something special for your partner, friends, or kids this Thursday (but don't feel like spending 100 hours baking and preparing), look no further than this incredibly easy, really impressive-looking Valentine's Day Heart Cupcake Recipe. So cute!

Yum, I don't think I'll be doing any baking for Valentine's day. I'm really the only one who likes cakes, brownies, etc and my body doesn't need it lol.
