Paris: Eiffel Tower Cupcakes

My pal Sarah does not like chocolate, so I used a recipe I have for Sprinkle's Strawberry Cupcakes for her Paris shower cupcakes.  One thing I need to say (for my own sanity) is that the frozen strawberries and butter can make this icing VERY runny in humid/warmer weather.  I ended up adding double the powdered sugar, and even at that I had to keep them refrigerated, and they were sagging by the end of the shower.  So, it's delicious, but....get LOTS of powdered sugar for sanity's sake. 
I piped these little eiffle towers for the top of the cupcake.  I just melted some chocolate in a ziplock, snipped the corner and did my best rendition and added the heart sprinkle.  I saw this on the net via a search via flickr.
Sarah's cupcake got a strawberry, the rest were garnished with these little guys.
