How to make the perfect cupcake for Valentine’s Day, says mom

From the time of the first wedding anniversary in the mid-19th century to today, Valentine’s day has been a day for celebrating love, love and love again.

Whether it’s the love and hugs, the food, the movies, or the gifts, the celebrations are always full of energy and love.

But when it comes to making the perfect cake, how do you know if you have what it takes to make it? 

It’s a simple question that will help you decide if you can make the best cupcake ever, said Laura Lippman, a pastry chef, author and professor at the University of Michigan. 

Lippman has worked as a pastry master and baker since 1976 and has made over 100 different cakes for weddings, parties, corporate events, and family gatherings. 

Her top tips for making the best Valentine’s cupcake are:   1.

Decide on a base of butter and sugar.

Butter is the basic ingredients for the frosting, and the butter is a key ingredient in the cupcake recipe. 

It is essential to have a good amount of butter, which can make a huge difference to the texture of the cake.

 The base of the frostings must also have a fair amount of moisture, which will help keep the cake moist and fluffy.


Decorate your cupcakes with colorful flowers and sprinkles.

Many couples opt for flower arrangements on the cake, but some prefer to decorate their cupcakes using plain white icing.


Mix together the batter in the bowl with the cream and sugar, then spread it out on a cake tester.

If the batter seems dry, it’s time to add a little water.


Bake the cupcakes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 40 minutes.

Once the cupies are done baking, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool.


If you’d like, you can sprinkle the icing over the cup cakes.

If not, sprinkle the cup cake with powdered sugar.


When you are done, store the cupbons in an airtight container.


Enjoy the delicious, sweet, and complicated Valentine’s Cupcake!
