Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Lining-Up Your Hearts
Cut 2 (1/4-inch-deep) notches in opposite sides of each cupcake liner before placing in muffin pans and filling with batter. Stand cheesecake heart in batter in each cup, lining up top curved edges of heart with notches. To reveal hearts, cut frosted cupcakes in half across notches.
Tip 2
Size Wise
At 24 servings, this fun recipe is great for a party or classroom celebration.
Tip 3
How to Store
Keep frosted cupcakes refrigerated.
Tip 4
Important Note
When cutting the frozen cheesecake into the heart shapes, be sure to leave as little space possible between the cutouts.
Tip 5
Substitute
Prepare using your favorite color of food coloring.
