This is it the way I got it from CC buddy. I am using the cake doc choc. cake and the 7 minute w/raspberry extract but less since I hear McCormick's is real strong. Shaved choc. on top, a red gummy heart and if I get up the gumptions maybe a little RI violet for contrast.
CUPCAKES WITH RASBERRY TRUFFLE CENTER
I can't help with the heart shape, but I have a nice cupcake recipe with raspberry truffle center. I got this from "The Artful Cupcake"
1) make truffles by combining 3 Tbls heavy cream, 1 Tbls raspberry liquor (Chambord), and 4 oz semisweet chocolate in a double boiler over simmering water. Stir until mixture is melted and smooth. Remove from heat and freeze 15 minutes, or refrigerate 1 hour, or until mixture has solidified to a fudgy consistency. Using a meon baller, make truffles 1/2 inch in diameter. Put truffles in the freezer while you make the cupcakes.
2) Make white cake batter (I use th eheavenly white cake recipe from this site). Fill cupcake pans 1/2 full. Bake 10 minutes at 350 and remove from oven. Place a truffle in the center of each cupcake, and push down slightly, until tops are flsh with the top of pan. top with 1 teaspoon of batter, and return to oven for 10 minutes more.
3) When toothpick inserted into cake part comes out clean, remove from oven and cool upaide downon a cooling rack.
Frost with raspberry buttercream-YUM!
