Do you celebrate Valentines Day?

Normally hubby and I are pretty low key for Valentines Day. It has never been that important to me to celebrate on that day, but maybe this year I will make these cupcakes for him for dessert as well as a nice dinner.

I didn’t add the icing to the recipe. I forgot to right down the measurements for everything but basically I mixed with my hand mixer cream cheese, a bit of Swerve icing sugar, milk, pink pitaya powder and a bit of butter.
