10 Valentine's Day Cupcake Recipes To Sweeten Your Day (1)

Are you looking for some VDay inspiration? In this list, you will find 10 Valentine’s Day cupcake recipes. All of them are yummy, super easy, and quick to make! Give them a try!

What dessert could be better for Valentine’s Day than a strawberry cupcake with pink frosting and sugar hearts on top? Literally nothing!

I think cupcakes are the perfect type of dessert. First of all, they’re perfectly portioned. One cupcake = one portion of dessert, individually wrapped so you can eat it with your hands and not get your hands dirty. They’re also portable, so you can run away with them if you want to NOT share your cupcake with anyone (it’s not meant for sharing anyway!). Third, they’re super customizable. If you have a type of cake in mind that you know it’s your favorite (chocolate, for example), I assure you that you can transform it into a cupcake.

Cupcakes are like literal tiny cakes – they have a similar batter, they have some sort of cream or icing on top and they can be made with various flavors and even fresh fruit. And did I mention they’re absolutely adorable?!

And because Valentine’s Day is approaching fast, I cannot think of a better way to celebrate that with a fresh batch of yummy cupcakes.

Seriously, I can’t think of anyone that hates cupcakes. And if there are people like this, I’m absolutely convinced you can change their minds if you make the ideal cupcake combo for them. Chocolate, strawberries, vanilla, raspberry, white chocolate, coconut, lemon – you name it, there’s surely a cupcake that contains it. And that’s exactly why I love cupcakes so damn much!

Another thing I love about baking cupcakes for Valentine’s Day is that you can share them with more people. After all, Valentine’s Day isn’t always about you and your significant other; there are plenty more people in your life to love! Your friends, your family, your neighbors, your co-workers. So why not share some cute and yummy cupcakes with them as well?

Ah, last but not least: if you have patience and you love decorating something with your own hands, then creating pretty cupcakes MUST be the best activity for you. Satisfaction guaranteed!

Okay, enough with the praising of cupcakes, I guess you already understood just how awesome I think they are and how perfect this type of dessert is for Valentine’s Day. But how can you choose the best recipe this year? I mean… there are SO many options out there! Well, I did all the hard work (almost, you still have to make them, haha!) for you and I selected the 10 best recipes I could find!

Below you will find my short list of 10 Valentine’s Day cupcake recipes that you can try this year. You’ll find cupcakes for all tastes and preferences: strawberry cupcakes, chocolate cupcakes, red velvet cupcakes, and everything in-between. Complicated or simple, pink or white, you’ll surely find something to love in my list down below.

Now all you’re left to do is choose the perfect recipe for YOU and your loved one. Then get to work and surprise him/her with a sweet treat for Valentine’s Day. Cute, right?
