Valentine's Day Cupcakes!

My boyfriend and I celebrated Valentine's Day last Friday since I have school/work all day Monday. I made him cupcakes and cookies. For presents, we sort of put everything on hold. He was going to get me an iPhone but 1) I have to pay off some things so I told him to just wait until I could get him something nice too and 2) I don't know if I want the iPhone 4.. does anyone know when the iPhone 5 will come out?! I don't want to get it if the 5 comes out like a month later. =P
Anyways, we made a deal to give each other smaller presents for now ($40 limit.) I got him a new Nike gym bag, a cute elephant piggy bank, a Tech Deck fingerboard, and book -I wish I took photos because I wrapped everything so nicely!! =P
He was going to get me a perfume set that I wanted but when I told him no makeup, he got confused! So I told him he could get me a new pair of flats but then on Friday, we were being lazy and didn't want to go anywhere. I'm going to look for some later this week.. He did take me to dinner though. That was a nice effort though since he absolutely hates Valentine's Day. 
I used to get kind of mad at him but what's the point? He dreads this holiday. I don't necessarily love it but I love the pink and red and hearts and decorations.. and I love making things and wrapping things in all that pink and red. I'm over it now though because if he treats me extra nice on normal days it makes up for his loathing Valentine's Day.

Closer look at the cupcakes..
I loved the sprinkles. There were pink, red, and white hearts, red lips, pink sugar sprinkles, red sugar sprinkles, and crushed peppermint candy! The peppermint was delicious and I got the jar for only a dollar!
The cupcakes were white with rainbow flakes and strawberry frosting. I like to bake from scratch but haven't in the last few months just because I haven't had the time. These came out nicely though.. If you buy frosting at the store, get the whipped kind -it's delicious!
Happy Valentine's Day everyone. It's a great day to celebrate your love for others as well as yourself. Sure it's an overrated holiday but I do enjoy the pretty decorations and holiday items littered all over stores everywhere. Can't wait to go after Valentine's Day shopping -there are LOTS of Hello Kitty items I've got my eyes on at Target.


  1. Happy V-day to both of you. Those cupcakes look delish. I am not a big fan of V-day either. I am not sure when the iPhone 5 is coming out. My husband has the 4 and he loves it.

  2. Wahou they're so beautiful!!
    I love them! And I want to taste them!

  3. lovely cupcakes! :) happy vday to u!

  4. Yum! And your Valentine's Day sounds great! :)

  5. iPhone 5 probably won't be coming out soon. I don't know for sure but Verizon just got the iPhone so it would be pretty messed up for their customers.

    Love the cupcakes!

  6. The cupcakes look lovely - especially the decoration on the frosting!

    Can't stand Valentine's day most of the's too over the top for that one day of the year, unlike Christmas, and way too pink. Yes, I love pink...but not when it's shoved down your retina and into your throat! At least there's plenty of special chocolates and food to choose from today!

    Bring on tomorrow and all Valentine's day related discounted Lush goodies, lol.

  7. Happy Valentines Day ,cupcakes look so yummy I am feeling hungry now :)
