With Valentine’s Day coming up, we’re going with cupcakes. Because everyone loves cupcakes, even if they don’t want to admit it.

Opened almost two years ago at King and Victoria, Prairie Girl Bakery now has a second location in the PATH, and there will be another one opening in Yorkville come March.

From day one, Prairie Girl’s red velvet cupcake has been ranked as one of the city’s best. But for those who want to switch things up, the bakery’s classic red velvet cupcake is being reinvented for Valentine’s Day with vanilla bean icing instead of cream cheese.

Red and white with a red jelly heart on top, this cupcake ($1.75 for a mini cupcake or $2.95 for a regular-sized one) screams Valentine’s Day inside and out. Get one of these for your sweetie and you’ll score some points — for cheap, too.

And for the purists: don’t worry, the classic versions will still be available!

Prairie Girl Bakery, 18 King St. E., Unit 106, 416-504-2253
