If you are the room mom, these cupcakes plus these kid-friendly Valentine’s Day activities will make the party complete.

The simple chocolate cupcake recipe is quick to make. You can even premake a batch of cupcakes and store them in the freezer or refrigerator if you want to bake one day and decorate the next day!
What I love the most about fondant is that it’s not super messy, but still tastes delicious and looks fancy!
You can add just about any heart candy that you can find, or you could make your own with heart cutters and colored fondant. And if hearts aren’t your thing, you could sub out letters or animals, if you are looking for something for a different theme other than Valentine’s Day cupcakes.
