Valentine’s Day Snack: “Jesus in Our Hearts” Cupcakes What kid do you know who doesn’t love cupcakes? For every 12 students, you’ll need: A prepared cake mix, powdered sugar, frosting in a tube, and strawberry preserves. First, spoon the cake batter into muffin cups. Make sure to fill each cup only half full. Then, spoon 1 teaspoon of preserves into the center of each cupcake. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 25 minutes. Then, dust each cupcake with powdered sugar. This recipe makes 12 cupcakes. To decorate the cupcakes, have children each use frosting in a tube to put a cross on their cupcake. Say a quick prayer of thanks and have children dive into their special treat. Then, remind children as they enjoy their snack that we can only love people the way God wants when Christ is hidden in our hearts—like the preserves are hidden in their cupcakes.
