Strawberry Heart Cupcakes

My baby turns three years old this week (time seems to go by a lot faster these days!).  To celebrate her precious, little life, we invited a sweet family over to eat lunch and a few piled-high-with-frosting cupcakes.  Since her birthday is so close to Valentine's Day and her favorite color is pink, we chose to decorate the cupcakes with a little pink, red and a strawberry heart on top.

To make the strawberry heart, I cut off the stem and sliced it into pieces (about 1/4" thick)....

Then I used a tiny heart-shaped cutter and pressed it into one of the strawberry pieces....

After hearts were cut-out, I placed them on top of the frosted cupcakes (note: set the strawberries in frosting no earlier than one hour before you plan to eat them- the strawberry juice will begin to run).

We served the cupcakes with chocolate covered strawberries.... yum!  Perfect for Valentine's Day or celebrating a birthday with loved ones!
