Valentine's Day is the perfect day of the year to take that little extra step to make a meal feel really special. Adding a few easy crafts to everyday cupcakes makes this treat even more sweet to eat!
- Peanut butter cupcakes
- Lollipop sticks
- Felt hearts
- All-purpose glue

1 Glue a felt heart to the end of each lollipop stick (you may have to shorten the sticks if they are too big for the size of your cupcakes). Leave to dry completely.
2 Add the sprinkles as you please and place the lollipop stick in in the frosting, slightly tilted to the side. Tie red ribbon around each cupcake, securing with a knot.
