So first, my favorite from scratch peanut butter icing recipe:
1/2 c butter
1 c creamy peanut butter (I use Peter Pan)
4 c confectioners sugar
1/3 c cream (I use whole milk)
In a large bowl, beat butter and peanut butter until light and fluffy. Slowly beat in 1/2 of the confectioner's sugar. Mix in 1/4 cup of the cream. Beat in the remaining confectioners' sugar. If necessary, add a little more cream or milk until the frosting reaches a good spreading consistency. Makes enough to frost one 2 layer 9 inch cake or one 9x13 inch cake.

This gorgeous and vibrant set is from Party Box Design. I love the bold colors, fun mix of patterns, and sweet, or should I say tweet theme. I'm not sure how long they'll be available so hurry up!

And a couple more cupcake shots just because styling and taking these photos was my way of attempting to get out the party planning bug. In case you're wondering, it didn't work.
And yes, I need to work on my icing skills (and supplies). I'm still using the plastic baggy with the corner snipped. Shame shame.
Well if you either want to eat a cupcake or throw a Valentine's Day party (or both) my work here is done.
