Step 3: First layer of icing or the ‘crumb coat’ – Frost the cakes with vanilla icing to lock in the crumbs. It doesn’t have to be perfect because you will ice with colored frosting on top of this layer. Tip: for best results use room temperature icing and have a cup of hot water handy to continuously dip your off-set spatula in and wipe clean with a paper towel.  This will help keep the icing on your Conversation Heart Cupcakes smooth.

Step 4: Refrigerate all of the pre-iced Conversation Heart Cupcakes for at least 4 hours (overnight if possible).

Step 5: Mix icing colors with food coloring to match the colors of conversation hearts. I used strawberry icing for the pink hearts and as a base to make purple by adding one drop of blue food coloring. I used the vanilla icing mixed with one drop of food coloring for the rest of the colors.
