Product Review:Valentines Multi Colored Hearts Cupcake Cuties Kit

I was thrilled a while back to find out about a great company called  CupcakeCuties.  The most easiest way , yet most beautiful & creative way to decorate a simple cupcake. This company has really hit the mark with this idea. A company created and started by a mother named Theresa who came upon this genious idea after attending a birthday party where naked cupcakes were served instead of of the usual birthday cake. Yes, I did just say naked cupcakes, read more here about her story  About Cupcake Cuties

  Ok, now that you have read how Theresa came up with such a bright idea on how to Dress Up an ordinary everyday cupcake, I'll show you the Valentine Design that she was kind to send me for a product review & what a true hit it was at my little grandson's school Valentine Party.

    You simply go to the Cupcake Cutie's web site, pick which design theme you wish to Dress Up Your Cupcakes with and that chosen kit will come with 24 paper sleeves to go around the cupcakes that you make, and the kit comes with the toppings you will need to complete your desired design. All you have to provide and do is bake your cupcakes, icing them and add the cupcake cuties toppings and sleeves to them.

     I was blessed to recieve the "Valentines Multi Colored Hearts Cupcake Cuties Kit" Made By Cupcake Cuties
Which Comes with the Valentine paper sleeve you see below & the tiny mixed colored candy heart candies for the topping.

They were so simple to use too. I choose to make 24 cupcakes in 1/2 French Vanilla with vanilla icing and 1/2 Dark Chocolate with chocolate icing then added the candy heart sprinkles. Here are mine below before I added the icing after the cupcakes had cooled and I added the paper band sleeve. It says on the box kit to add the sleeves to the finished iced cupcake, which you can certainly do, but I found it easier since I was going to be using two differant icing colors and changing my icing tips, to just put the sleeves on, set them side by side in my container and then pipe my icing onto each cooled cupcake, add my candy heart sprinkles. That way I'm not touching the bottom of each sleeve as I placed it inside the container and getting icing smudges onto my pretty sleeves. If you think about the way the bottoms of cupcakes are made after pouring your cake batter into the cupcake papers, you'll know that they are bevealed and don't sit up perfectly straight. So the sleeve lets them sit up straight and really gives them such a pretty appearance. I will say though that you need to make sure that your cupcakes do have a top to them which is what will keep your paper sleeve on and not let the cupcake slide down into the sleeve and fall out. A few of mine were not filled high enough with batter to create a top to hang over so my sleeve was looser, so I just made that sleeve tighter. The paper sleeves have a peel off sticky adhesive at one end so that you can place the sleeve as tight or loose as you choose. So if you make big cupcakes or tiny ones they will work ither way.

After they were iced and added my topping of the candy hearts provided by Cupcake Cuties *Note* You should add your toppings as soon as the icing goes on so they stick well to it, for after the icing hardens I feel it would be harder to let them stick as well. I iced my two color choices with a wilton star tip & a ribbon tip then sprinkled my candy hearts topping onto them right away and any candy hearts that fell into the container actually made it really pretty for appearance. When they were opened for the kids in my grandsons class one like boy said "OMG" and everybody just laughed because that was so cute and they were a big hit with the kids. I actually thought that after they ate there cupcakes instead of throwing away there paper sleeves I mentioned that the kids could use them as arm braclets or bands because they were the perfect size for there little arms and they did which was also great fun for them and they looked upon that as a treat to enjoy.

Also most gone, not many left in the container , they were a hit!
