Raspberry Valentines day cupcakes!

Hey guys! So there are only a few short days until Valentine’s Day! If you haven’t already, go read Monday’s post to help you get decorating! Now onto today’s post. 

Raspberry Valentines day cupcakes!

Yesterday, I made these yummy vanilla-raspberry cupcakes! These cupcakes are made of two parts. A delicious vanilla cake, topped with smooth rich raspberry buttercream frosting! Then you can add sprinkles if you want and of course, eat them!

I frosted these using the large sized open star tip in this AMAZING set I got on amazon, in a Wilton frosting bag. Before getting these frosting tips I just thought I was horrible at frosting cupcakes, until I realized that I was using the small Wilton brand tips that are really made for making designs, not frosting a cupcake. So I bought these tips and instantly fell in love with them! They are so great! You can frost both mini and normal sized cupcakes! Buy this set here.

All you do is just pop them into the frosting bag, add the frosting, and trim the tip of the bag off! Then just frost the cupcakes! Down below, you can see all of the items I used in this recipe and where to buy them. Now onto the recipe!

Hey guys! So how are you doing on Valentine’s? Are you one of the people who has all of the decor and valentines ready a month in advance or do you have no idea what your doing so the decor doesn’t end up getting put up until the day of? Right now our house is being remodeled so we don’t really have our decorations out right now, luckily some of the rooms are done so I have a place to hang up a few things 🙂 .

One of the few Valentines things I have hung up is this adorable chicken wire clip board I got at Michaels! I absolutely love it because it can be changed up for every season/holiday, and it’s super simple to do! It took me 5 minutes, start to finish to get this set up and the result is beautiful!

Slice N’ Bake valentines cookies

Hi! I made these slice n’ bake valentines cookies today. They are delicious! This is my first time making these cookies and most of them turned out pretty well. These are the perfect cookie for Valentines day. Everyone will love them! slicenbake Get the recipe for the dough below. Once you have the dough made, take 1/3 of the dough and use food coloring to die it red. Roll the red dough out pretty thick and cut hearts out of it.20160208_142017 (1).jpg

Once you cut the hearts out line them up and stick them together. Try not to ruin the shape. Next you will use the normal dough,roll it into little snakes of dough and cover the row of hearts(sorry I don’t have a picture for this step)

When you have the whole heart row covered gently roll it to get it round. Once that’s done cover it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour or over night.

Once refrigerated, slice your cookies 1/2 inch thick and bake for 8-10 mins, or until bottoms are slightly golden brown.20160208_155440
