This instructable will teach you how to make heart shaped cupcakes with standard cupcake pans. I got this idea from a mother whose child was in my oldest daughter's preschool class. We've been making this every Valentine's Day since.

Step 1: Get The Stuff

You need:
cake batter (one box prepared according to package instructions)
cupcake pans
cupcake liners
colored sprinkles (optional)

Using glass marbles like this is brilliant! I love the mushroom-shaped cupcakes too. Thanks for sharing.
I used this method to make cupcakes for Easter that were shaped like bunnies. They looked sooooo good, but then when I went to put them in the oven they slipped out of my hand when they were halfway in and spilled ALL OVER the oven door.
The marbles are a really clever idea!
I've now made other shapes using this technique. Two marbles can be used to make a mushroom shape (the marbles define the stem.) For shamrock cupcakes, four marbles are used (two define the stem, the others form the leaves.) You can see pictures of these on my blog at <a rel="nofollow" href="http://craftasticworld.blogspot.com/2009/02/shaped-cupcakes-from-standard-pans.html">http://craftasticworld.blogspot.com/2009/02/shaped-cupcakes-from-standard-pans.html</a><br/>
This is cool! Now everyone can make bakery style cupcakes for our sweethearts. Best of all they're easy to do! Thanks for sharing.
I love this! I'm linking to you on my blog, if you don't want me to use your pictures, just let me know. notanotheromnivore.blogspot.com NAOmni
Go ahead and use the pictures. Thanks for the link.
Thanks so much, I really appreciate it!
Very pretty instructible. I've also made these with rolled up pieces of aluminum foil instead of marbles. Not only does the foil form the heart shape, but it also doesn't overheat (plus I don't have to worry about where the marbles have been).
What a simple and efficient idea! Small safety point - if you drop the hot marbles into something cold, they can shatter.
Haha! Need to try that.
No worries as they cool gradually on their own. You can also use other heat resistant stones, granted it should be clean. Pie weights come to mind but I don't have any.
Nice Post,<br/>I will definately use this trick in next valentine day &amp; nice thing. If this post come before 14 feb then I really use it.<br/><br/>Thanks <br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://tech2computer.blogspot.com">http://tech2computer.blogspot.com</a><br/>
Wow, that's incredibly easy! Thanks for sharing such an awesome trick.
The marbles work really-well. To think other people would be making special tins. This is the sort of simple ingenuity that advances society - well done! L
