Bake cupcakes - any favorite flavor - in colorful Valentine-inspired baking cups. Ice with white decorator icing and top with red and pink sugar-coated heart-shaped cookies (or icing decorations) for a flirty finish.
Sugar Cookie Dough (1/2 of the prepared dough)
Red and Pink Colored Sugars
1 can (16 ounces) White Decorator Icing
1 package (18.25 ounces) favorite flavor cake mix
Water, oil and eggs to prepare mix
Preheat oven to 400∞F.
On lightly floured surface, roll cookie dough into a circle about 12 inches in diameter and 1/8 inch thick. Using nesting heart cookie cutters, cut 2 sizes small hearts, dipping cutter in flour before each use; sprinkle with colored sugars. Bake cookies on ungreased cookie sheet 6 to 7 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Cool cookies completely. Layer small and large cookies with icing between.
Reduce oven temperature to 350∞F. Place Sweetheart Bandana baking cups in standard muffin pan. Prepare cake mix following package directions. Fill cups 2/3 full; bake 17 to 19 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool cupcakes completely. Ice cooled cupcakes with icing; insert cookies, mounding additional icing if necessary.
Convenience Tip: Substitute Hearts Remembered Icing Decorations for cookies to top cupcakes.
