The easiest way to make heart shaped cupcakes is to buy a heart cupcake pan and cupcake liners. You can find these in most baking stores or online.

Add the paper cupcake liner and let the foil tube indent the top of the liner, creating the divot of the heart. Add the cupcake batter and bake the cupcakes as normal. Once baked, they will be indented at the top just like a heart!
Sprinkles are always the best and easiest decoration for cupcakes. Look for festive sprinkles that will add instant flair and beauty to your cupcakes. Chocolates are also great for adding to the top of cupcakes since they look decadent and taste amazing. Skip hard candies that can be tough to eat along with a fluffy, light cake.
Making good cupcakes is easy as long as you buy high quality ingredients, measure correctly, bake the cupcakes as directed and decorate them with fun, pretty toppings. These little tips will help your cupcakes turn out perfectly. Remember to choose a high-quality recipe, to go slow, and read the recipe carefully when baking.
