Chocolate Cupcakes with Pink Frosting

O Meu Tempero

Make these festive treats for all the Valentines in your life. The frosting is simply whipped cream (here from a package mix, but you could make it from scratch if you prefer) that's tinted a lovely shade of pink and then piped using a pastry bag fitted with a star tip (or the tip of your choice) to cover each cupcake. If you are new to piping, it is actually fast and easy to do.
