  1. 1 package white cake mix (regular size)
  2. 4 cups confectioners' sugar
  3. 1/2 cup butter, softened
  4. 1/2 cup shortening
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  6. 1/8 teaspoon butter flavoring, optional
  7. 2 tablespoons milk
  8. 1 to 2 drops red food coloring, optional
  9. 1 to 2 drops yellow food coloring, optional
  10. 1 to 2 drops blue food coloring, optional
  1. Prepare cake mix batter according to package directions for cupcakes.
  2. Place paper or foil liners in a heart-shaped or standard muffin tin. Fill cups half full of batter. Bake according to package directions for cupcakes. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. For frosting, in a large bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, butter, shortening, vanilla, butter flavoring if desired and milk until smooth.
  4. Divide frosting into fourths if desired; place in four separate bowls. Leave one bowl untinted. Add one color of food coloring to each of the other three bowls; stir until well blended. Frost cupcakes. Pipe untinted frosting around edges and decorate tops with Valentine phrases. Yield: 28 cupcakes.
