DIY Bake A Heart Into A Cupcake

Heart Baked into a Cupcake

Tell me that is not the cutest (gluten free!) cupcake you have ever seen?! You may be thinking "Why is she writing about a Valentine's Day treat in September?" Well, while this is obviously a perfect Valentine's Day treat, you can't tell me that your kids (or husband!) wouldn't love to bit into a cupcake and find a warm, loving heart staring back at them! Even better? It's pretty darn easy! Gluten free, grain free, dairy free, nut free - and deliciously adorable.

Here's the tutorial from Made With Love for how to create this amazingly adorable confection!

Gluten Free Vanilla Cupcakes

Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcakes

Gluten Free Strawberry Cupcakes - maybe add a little food coloring (natural or otherwise) and use this batter for the hearts?!

Any chance this can be made without red dye #40? How do you get the heart in the cupcake? Thanks.;o)

Hi Lee,

Yes you can bake this without Red Dye #40 - you can use any variety of food coloring, including natural choices (like beet or raspberry juice) to achieve the red color. As for the how-to, the link above to the tutorial from Made With Love shows you how! Thanks for reading!
