Valentine CupcakesI’ve never known a kid (or an adult for that matter) who didn’t like cupcakes, and Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to make and eat them! Here’s a fantastic recipe for Valentine’s Day cupcakes from FamilyFun that uses Fruit by the Foot to decorate the cakes as roses.

 What you need:

  • 12 mini cupcakes
  • White icing
  • Scissors
  • 6 rolls of Fruit by the Foot fruit leather in Cherry Rage or strawberry flavor
  • 1 roll of Fruit by the Foot fruit leather in Color by the Foot flavor


  1. Frost 12 mini cupcakes with white icing.
  2. To make a rose, unroll a piece of the cherry or strawberry fruit leather and divide it in half along the wavy perforated middle line. Take one of the halves and roll up about 5 inches to form the flower’s center. Set the rolled strip wavy side up in the middle of a cupcake, as shown, and continue to loosely wrap the remaining fruit leather around the center at a slight angle until the flower is completed.
  3. Repeat this process for the remaining flowers. (You should be able to get 2 mini roses out of each roll of fruit leather.)
  4. Cut leaf shapes from the wavy edge of the Color by the Foot strip as shown, then tuck the leaves under the roses.
