heart shaped and homemade hostess cupcakes

So it's the season for all things heart shaped! Valentines day is just around the corner so of course there is a need for some heart shaped goodies to make everyone smile a little more.

Last year I did these flying heart cupcakes to celebrate my little one's heart day (if you missed this years celebration, you can find it here!) and they are one of my most popular blog posts ever (thanks to a lot of pinterest sharing! Thank you to anyone that has shared, liked or linked back to the post!)

The heart shaped cupcake is made by baking them with a marble in between the pan and cupcake liner.  I first saw this on Pinterest shared by Muses of Megret.  Neat right? And I used this recipe for the homemade hostess cupcakes.   

I am a big fan of the Hostess cake line (especially Sno Balls hence this post and this one!) so I hope they figure out a way to keep the brand going.  But if not, these homemade versions really did come out very tasty (probably better than the originals) and the heart shape kinda gives them an extra Valentines Day kick!

Or you could forget Valentines Day all together and make them just for the heck of it.  These were made for a good friend's birthday celebration (Sorry I missed the show Ray, I was there in spirit.  Happy Birthday Old Man!)

Thanks as always for stopping by and have a great great super great weekend!
