Vegan Cupcakes with Hearts or something?

I made Vegan Golden Vanilla Cupcakes for my friend Molly's birthday.
I created my own frosting and I wanted to make a heart, so I put a blob of white frosting in the middle and used a knife to shape it into the hearts. The problem was that by the time I got to the 6th heart, the first one was sort of melting. I think I used too much coconut oil in the frosting. So I ended up with a platter full of hearts, and broken hearts, and bleeding hearts, and some that looked more like divorce cupcakes than Valentines theme, so I tried to re-swirl the frosting into an abstract pattern on those! A few actually looked like leaves, which was cool. And they all tasted sweet!

I used the recipe for Golden Vanilla Vegan Cupcakes from this book (click the link to view on Amazon):
