Let's talk Coffee Cake.
Many many years ago, people started to realize that eating sweet cakes with their morning coffee was a pretty amazing way to start the day. And honestly, they were not wrong. The Coffee Cake trend caught on and different countries and cultures all started to put their own spin on it.
Fast forward to today, and Americans have taken this sweet treat trend and really run with it. Think doughnuts, french toast, cinnamon rolls, poptarts - the list goes on and on. We LOVE our breakfast sweets.
And in my opinion, one of the best is still the classic American style Coffee Cake.
But instead of making the traditional slab cake, I decided to put all the best parts of a Coffee Cake and into a cupcake.
With Valentine's Day coming up, cupcakes seemed like a much easier way for people to spread the love than going through the effort of slicing everyone a piece of cake. And I can assure you, nothing makes someone feel more loved and appreciated than a homemade baked good - especially if you add a note on top that says "I hate you the least"!
I used this heart punch to cut out some hearts and then just glued little notes on them. Then I taped the hearts onto a standard toothpick and stuck them in the cupcakes. The easiest and cutest cupcake toppers ever!
Obviously these cupcakes are also great without the little love notes on top. But I think the toppers add a little something special!
