Valentine's day cupcake toppers

So food photography isn't quite my forte (and not nearly as beautiful as my favorite food photographer friends, Jacquelyn and Cynthia) but today I thought I'd give it a shot in order to showcase one more Valentine's day idea that I'm totally in love with because well, it includes cupcakes. Or any sweet treat of your choice (cake, pastry, baked goods, nom nom...). Ok, so I basically cheated and just got some pretty cupcakes from NYC's famous Magnolia Bakery, but make them special by adding your own painted cupcake topper with the initial of your valentine, of course! I mean, tell me, who doesn't like a personalized cupcake?!? I also painted the skewers white, until about an inch above the actual cupcake. Looks like my valentine and I are having cupcakes for breakfast...
