Valentine’s Day is just around the corner… can you believe it? I can’t think of a better way to impress your honey this year (or coworkers or anyone!) than with these homemade cupcakes with cream cheese frosting!
When I first tested this recipe back in 2012, I made this from-scratch version along with a boxed mix to compare. The extra time it took to make homemade is totally worth the effort.
Oh, and check out my lovely photo from 2012 below!
Gotta start somewhere… am I right?! (They still tasted delicious!)
Do I have to use homemade cream cheese frosting or can I use store-bought?
Feel free to use store-bought, but this frosting is totally worth the extra effort as well (and too easy NOT to make from scratch!).
What pretty toppings can I use on the frosting?
Decorating sprinkles and/or glitter, sugar pearls or shavings from a dark chocolate candy bar are a few that come to mind.
