1. Preheat oven to 350 ºF. Line a muffin pan with 6 baking cups.

3. Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking cups and fill each 2/3 of the way full.
4. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Insert a toothpick into the cakes, and they should be ready when the toothpick comes out clean.

6. Add the remaining 1 cup powdered icing sugar, continue to beat until light and fluffy. Add the strawberry jam or red food color for a light pink color, add more icing sugar when it’s too runny.
7. When the cupcakes are completely cool, put the buttercream frosting in the piping bag, and make frosting swirls with a piping tip on top of cupcakes.
8. Decorate with the heart-shaped candies. Enjoy them with your valentine!
