    Mom2Rose's Note:

    It's a snap to spell out sweet sentiments on these quaint cupcakes when you bake a batch ahead of time using convenient cake mix. You don't even need a heart-shaped muffin tin to make them.

      I haven't tried this recipe but I have to say a huge thanks for the idea of how to make a heart-shaped muffin with foil. I like the idea of hearts but I can't justify buying expensive mufffin tins just for a once a year romantic dinner. Thanks again and I will definitely try this out!
