These delicious little sweetheart cupcakes start with one of my new favorite treats - pink meringue cookies. They're super easy to make and are fun way to top off your cupcakes.
It's easier to separate egg whites from the yolk if your eggs are cold. After separating your whites bring them to room temperature. This will cut down on how long you have to beat your egg whites. You can use regular granulated sugar, however, Baker's Sugar makes for a smoother meringue. It's finer and you're less likely to have pockets of sugar crystals. To add coloring or a flavoring extract to your meringues, quickly mix in a few drops of coloring and/or 1 teaspoon of flavoring after your stiff peaks have formed.
