Wednesday Dad and I planned how to celebrate Valentine's Day on the actual day, but Mom had forgotten to tell us she was going out of town that evening. Thus, we celebrated it a day late tonight.
My plan was to make a heart shaped cake with cupcakes as Mom thought that was cool when we were in Target the other day. Since the kitchen is only partially unpacked I had to improvise a little in how I made it. For one, we had no mixing bowls unpacked when I was mixing up the batter, so I ended up using a pot. Of course, the one box I unpacked while the cupcakes were baking was the one with some of the mixing bowls!
Secondly, we have not found the pans, so I could not make regular sized cupcakes. What I had unpacked already, though, was my mini cupcake maker, which ended up being a better way of making them anyways. However, it took forever to use up all the batter (about 8 batches at 8 minutes each).
I topped the cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and strawberries after arranging them in a heart shape.
