Sweet Cupid Cupcake

A cupcake (baked from your favorite recipe)
Pink- or peach-tinted frosting
Large marshmallow
Thin pretzel stick
Crisped rice cereal (a handful)
Decorators' gel
Candy heart

Frost a cupcake (baked from your favorite recipe) with pink- or peach-tinted frosting.
For wings, use kitchen shears to cut a large marshmallow in half vertically, then snip each half widthwise a few times for a feathery look. Press a thin pretzel stick against the sticky side of each marshmallow half, then stick the pretzels into the cupcake.
Press a handful of crisped rice cereal along the top of the cupcake for Cupid's curly locks, then add a decorators' gel mouth and eyes. Finally, set a candy heart in place and pipe on frosting fingers, if you like.
