Cupcakes are universally loved by adults and children alike. So when it comes to making sweet treats for Valentine’s Day parties featuring children, some Valentine’s Day cupcake ideas are sure to be a hit with the kids. Even if you are not much of a baker, you surely can make use of some amazing valentine cupcakes decorating ideas to jazz up some ordinary store-bought cupcakes. You can also rope in some help from the kids to get going on fun valentine cake designs to double the fun and share some sweet loving time.
Quirky and Fun Valentine’s Day Cupcake Ideas for Parties
The most important thing to keep in mind while making anything in large batches is simplicity. To make easy Valentine desserts which not only taste good but also look appealing, you can use berries, edible flowers, jimmies, edible glitters, and sprinkles or funky transfers. Many Valentine’s Day cake ideas also feature comic figures made with frosting or icing pipes. Spiderman designs are a big hit because they are easy to make and the bold colors go well with the V-Day theme.
Which Cupcake Flavours Do Children Love?
It is not very difficult to please kids as long as you got the checklist of sweet, colorful and fun sorted. In terms of dessert flavors, children have some clear favorites:
- Peanut Butter & Jelly: An adult will drool over well made and appetizing PB & J cupcakes, so forgive the kids if the cupcakes disappear faster than anything else at the party.
- Oreo: Oreo is a miracle- put it anywhere and kids will take it up. Chocolate or two-in-one cupcakes with crushed Oreo frosting and a tiny piece for décor on each have the potential to remain a kid favorite for a long time.
- Strawberry: The simplest of Valentine’s Day brownie ideas can be transformed with the sweet touch of strawberries. If you coat it in chocolate or cream and pour sprinkles over, nothing like it. Whole strawberries work wonderfully well for cupcake décor too.
Most Valentine’s Day cupcake ideas can be customized for kids, except for those which come with adult ingredients.
