Make antennae in advance by cutting licorice string into 2 1/2 inch pieces. Attach Hearts Remembered Icing Decorations at one end of licorice pieces with buttercream icing. Let antennae dry overnight.
Bake cupcakes in Hearts Standard Baking Cups or any Valentine Themed Baking Cup, and cool completely on Cooling Grid.
