Valentine Cupcake Tic Tac Toe

Hello and Welcome to Red Couch Recipes! 

How about playing a game of Valentine Cupcake Tic Tac Toe with your favorite sweetie?  The best part about it is that these are edible X's and O's -- Kisses and Hugs!  How about the winner gets to eat all their cupcakes -- well, maybe just the three in a row?  Looks like the lucky X's (Kisses) win this game!

Of course if you are not in the mood for Tic Tac Toe, how about
spelling out words such as LOVE, BE MINE, HUGS?

However you choose to create, these cupcakes are fun and easy to make!

All you need are your favorite cupcakes, buttercream frosting, and cinnamon candies.

Here's a recipe for Buttercream frosting, if you need one

Blend together 3/4 cup room temperature butter, 4 cups powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract, and 3-4 tablespoons water. You may need to add extra water, depending on how thick you want it.

I think you will find that this game of Tic Tac Toe really ramps up the old traditional game.

Usher in the Valentine's Season by making some cupcakes today!

I found this concept in a Martha Stewart's Children's Magazine from about 10 years ago.

Thank you for stopping by Red Couch Recipes!

What a fun idea! I love this and the winner gets to eat all??!!! I had the hardest time finding red hots except in the cake decorating section so when I saw them at Christmas I grabbed an extra. I know some kiddies who would love playing this game. Too cute.
