Valentines Day Recipes – CONVERSATION CUPCAKES

1 package (18-1/4 ounces) white cake mix

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened

1/2 cup shortening

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/8 teaspoon butter flavoring, optional

4 cups confectioners’ sugar

2 tablespoons milk

1 to 2 drops red food coloring

1 to 2 drops yellow food coloring

1 to 2 drops blue food coloring

Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Place paper or foil liners

in a heart-shaped or standard muffin tin. Fill cups half full of batter. (If

using a standard tin, tuck a 1/2-inch foil ball or a marble between the

liner and the cup to form a heart shape.) Bake according to package directions for

cupcakes. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks to cool

completely. For frosting, cream butter and shortening in a small mixing bowl

Add vanilla and butter flavoring if desired. Add sugar, 1 cup at a time, beating

well after each addition. Beat in milk until light and fluffy. Divide frosting into

fourths; place in four separate bowls. Leave one bowl untinted. Add food

coloring to the other three bowls; stir until well blended. Frost cupcakes.

Pipe untinted frosting around edges and decorate tops with Valentine phrases.

Yield: 28 cupcakes.
