These hugs and kisses Valentine's Day-inspired cupcakes are an adorable way to celebrate the holiday. Though we decorated ours with Xs and Os, you can get creative with the toppings and designs. Swap in chocolate hearts, candy hearts, coloured sprinkles, chocolate whipped topping, or artfully-placed fresh berries.
