In a 1 gallon container, place sugar and hot water, and stir until sugar dissolves. Add lemon juice and cold water to render 1 gallon. Stir until well mixed. Pour lemonade over glasses of ice, squeeze slice of lemon on top of each, and garnish with a sprig of mint.

Valentine’s Day Cupcake Decorating Cheat Sheet

Cupcakes are a lot of fun to decorate. Here’s a Valentine’s Day Cupcake Decorating Cheat Sheet to help you choose your perfect cupcake! Never fear, with time and and a little love, a determined cook can make anything!

The great thing about all these recipes is they can be easily made with a standard box of cake mix. Chocolate works for most of these but feel free to experiment!

Peanut Butter M&M

Effortless and cute!  Get some Peanut Butter frosting and Valentine’s M&M’s. Frost and sprinkle on top!

Candy XOXO

It gets a little harder now! Vanilla frosting works best to help the design stand out. Get some small red candies and gently place them in the wet frosting in X’s and O’s.  Just make sure the frosting hardens with candies already in so they stick!

Frosting Swirl

Simple. We promise! Just put two colors of frosting, unmixed, in a frosting tube and frost! DIYers can use a Ziploc bag, and cut off the tip. Squeeze gently, the key here is to keep the frosting as unmixed as possible.

Heart Shaped

These are easier then they look! You just need the secret ingredient!

^ Here’s the trick!^  Fill cupcake cups and cake mix and put them in the pan, then get a marble and place it between the cup and the metal pan creating an indent.

Powdered Sugar Hearts

Okay, your getting a little creative here. Here’s the key to this effect, cut a heart shape out of wax paper or card stock.  Use both the heart cut out and the remaining sheet to cover the cupcakes and sift the powdered sugar over top to make your heart topping. Do an even number of each and place them in an alternating pattern for effect.

Strawberry Puree Inside

There’s some skill level in this one. Use strawberry jam and a cupcake filler, Target and Bed, Bath, and Beyond will usually have one available. When you’re done frost as normal!

Cut Out Hearts

Your really going for it now! Cut the tops off chocolate cupcakes, added a layer of pink frosting, punched a heart shape using a cookie cutter, then replaced the top onto the cupcake.

Roses and Ribbons

Wow Master Chef! I’m impressed! Frost you cupcakes with white frosting to help the roses stand out. Use fondant to make the roses, color it, rolled it flat and then cut into uneven strips 3/4 inch strips. Then, start at one end and roll them up. Tie a ribbon around for extra effect.

We are the ultimate romantics at Rise and Shine and we enjoy helping love to blossom in any way. You’ll have to find that special someone on your own, but with our event planning and location scouting services, you’re sure to fall in love!
