Valentine's Day Basket Cupcakes and Sugar Cubes...

 For the basket style cupcake:
 Make you favorite cupcakes and frost as you like....
1. Cut a length of silver glitter pipe cleaner that is long enough to tuck in each side of the cupcake to create a handle.

2. Thread  beads or place a bow to center of pipe cleaner.

3. Bend as in basket handle and tuck each side in between the cupcake and paper as in picture below.


Candy hearts and a tea lite add a nice touch to a  vintage crystal punch cup.
 Mix 2 teaspoons of water to every cup of sugar you use, mix well, it will feel like damp sand like when making a sandcastle.

Place a sheet of parchment or foil paper on a cookie sheet.  Press some of the mixture into a tiny heart shaped cookie cutter, and carefully lift it up and away, repeat until you have the number of cubes you need.  Place out of the way to dry, about two hours.
