Cheap Valentine's Day Ideas!

what's say's Valentine's Day and love more than hearts and homemade craft!
Anyone can buy a card or flowers or chocolates....
but if you make a card of Valentine's present...you'll be as one-of-a-kind as you are!

How to Make an AWESOME Valentine's Day Card:
Buy some cardboard heart shapes (I got the glittery hearts above at Wal-Mart)...
write on the back in in a fun hot pink Sharpie pen...and -voila!
You just created an awesome card and Valentine's decoration in one!
BONUS: you can even buy a heart shaped lollipop (like the ones in the picture that I got from Wally World, too) and tape your "giant heart card" onto the lollipop!

The BEST VALENTINE's day gift! (cheap and you can make it yourself!)
The World's Best Chocolate Cupcakes!

I cannot tell you the deliciousness of these cupcakes! They are simply amazing! I have been known to eat an entire tray of a dozen! ha ha ha

Watch below (as we make cupcakes with tons of love!)
(i hope this picture makes you smile..ha ha ha)

Hope you have a day filled with love and cupcakes! Who needs a Valentine when you have cupcakes as good as these! ha ha ha ha


huge cupcakes and super huge love from my heart to yours....
love your friend, kandee

I would like to share with you my super special way to eat cupcakes:


1. Break off the bottom half of the cupcake.

2. Flip it over and stick it on top of the frosting.

3. Enjoy your cupcake sandwich.

It's perfect because you get even frosting distribution in every bite! I have been eating cupcakes this way since kindergarten... and I'm 21 and married now hahahahha.

Tasinahri said...

Instead of canola oil can you substitute extra virgin olive oil instead? And if so, what is the measure ratio?

Thanks :)

Tasinahri said...

PS: Your little dance break was funny funny as heck! Definitely put a smile on my face and made me giggle :)

I made cupcakes for all the other staff where I work. I have to admit I bought a packet mix, but because the packet came with cute little tiny candy hearts to go on top and I couldn't find those separately. But I did do all the decoration myself, like making heart shapes out of chocolate for the top.

It's fun to do things for other people on Valentines Day - making other people happy always makes you feel better than anything you could get for yourself.

Go here to see the cupcake decoration fun

For Valentine's Day my mom, sister and I decided to surprise my dad by making home-made chocolate covered pretzels & Oreos. All we did was microwave the chocolate, dip the goodies, and lay them out to dry on wax paper. It was so much fun to make, and to clean up the chocolate, too! :)

lady2986 said...

I will let everyone known that i went to the video to write her receipe and made them the next day. I was scared to death since they didnt look like cake batter at all! but they came out so amazing! not too sweet and perfectly fluffy. The frosting we had some leftover and used it on waffles..yum!!! thanks Kandee

MJKV said...

Happy Valentine's Day to you all!! I just have to share what my husband did. When I opened the door after getting home from work today he was laying on the floor just inside the door. He had a box of chocolate and jelly hearts candy on his chest and he yelled: I LOVE YOU!! And he had also bought me flowers and a beauty magazine which I got after I had given him a LOT of kisses. Isn't that cute!?

Ashley Marie said...

mhduong said...

I have used your recipe to make these cupcakes and they turned out delicious!!! My friends loved them! They scarfed them down the second I handed them out and were in love with the cream cheese frosting.

rubobbybob said...

Thanx Kandee! :-) There´s one thing you said that makes me think a lot - "Without salt sweet doesn´t seem as sweet".
Well I told to myself - Isn´t this true also for life? Cause maybe without the "salt" (the bad things that happend to us) we might not apreciatte the "sweet" and the nice moments as much.
Anyways thanx for the great recipe & sorry for my poor English! :-)

Amanda said...

Hi Kandee! <3
