Love Bug Valentines Cupcakes Ingredients
- 6 Prepared Cupcakes
- 1 Can White Frosting
- 6 Pink Candy Melts
- Edible Candy Eyes
- Edible Confetti Hearts
- Black Licorice
- Pink Food Colouring
- Black Edible Food Marker
How to Make Love Bug Valentines Cupcakes
Scoop out about ½ of the frosting and place in a bowl. Add 1-2 drops of the pink food colouring and mix well.
Frost the cupcakes with the remaining white frosting. Then with the pink frosting, frost about ¾ of the cupcake leaving a little “V” wedge in the back. The pink will represent wings.
Cut little slivers of black licorice to represent the antennas. You will need 12.
Place a dab of frosting on the back of the candy eyes and place on the pink candy melts. Draw a smile with your edible marker.
In the front of the cupcake, place a lovebug head and 2 antennas. Then, place 3 confetti hearts on each side of the wings.
You now have a cute little love bug cupcake! Enjoy!!
