Valentine's Day Treats

Here are some cute cupcakes that I made for the kids at work. I used a mix and made a simple buttercream frosting. My frosting gun broke a while ago so I snipped off the corner of a ziploc bag to frost these. It worked pretty well, I think. To make the mini cupcakes below, I used little metallic bon-bon wrappers that I bought at Michaels. It's hard to get a sense of scale in this photo but they are about 1 1/2 inches wide. I baked them at 325 degrees for about 6--7 minutes and they turned out perfectly. They're bite size so great for a party where people don't have utensils.
