Valentine’s Day Cupcakes

    We are two weeks away from the year's most romantic holiday and I am already starting to feel all the love in the air. Not only do I like to celebrate the day with my sweetheart, AKA-Hubby, but I also enjoy making special treats for my boys so they will be reminded of how much they are loved.     When they were little, I used to make little gift baskets for them with little trinkets and sweets. Now that they are older, the way to their hearts is through their stomachs so I make sure that I bake their favorite desserts for them to enjoy.    This year, by special request, I am making cupcakes for Valentine's Day.

Minion Cupcakes Party Recipe

    My younger son's birthday is at the end of this month and he is going to be ten years old!  I'm very excited about planning his special day for him and making it unforgettable for him and the rest of the family.       Since he loves the Minions, I thought it would be a great idea to make some Minion cupcakes for his celebration.  I've been doing a lot of research online and checking out lots of photos of the different desserts that are out there involving the Minions.     I'm so excited about how these came out and I cannot wait to replicate them for his party.  I think I'm going to have to make a whole bunch because, between my sons and nephews, there are eight boys in the family and they all have hearty appetites.  I hope you guys enjoy making them in your home as much as I did eating them!
