Valentine’s Day Cupcakes


Loveheart Cupcakes


Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!  Has someone made your day today?  Just thought I would share this quick and easy way to make someone’s Valentine’s Day special.  I made these precious little cupcakes yesterday for my kids lunch boxes today.  And I’m pretty impressed with how they turned out.  You will never guess how I got the love heart shape (or maybe you will, and maybe I’m just behind the times).  I used Marbles!

Love Heart Cupcakes


Now, it looks easy, and it is, but here are a few tips.  First of all, put the batter in your patty pans before you add the marble.  I found this out through trial and error.

Secondly, only half-fill your patty papers because they don’t have as much room to rise.

And when they came out of the oven I discovered that my 1/2 teaspoon spoon measure was the perfect size to scoop out that marble, and with my first over-filled batch it was the perfect shape to scoop out the extra cake that had spilled out over the marble, making it a heart-shape again.

Then I iced the hearts with Rose Pink Icing and sprinkled on the coconut that I coloured pink with the food colouring.

(To colour coconut, just put some in a bowl and add a few drops of colouring and smush it around with a spoon until it colours your coconut).

And lastly, they more like a heart when you take the patty papers off.

It’s not a mind-boggling method of cake decorating, but my kids loved it.


P.S – I used my Little Cream Cakes recipe for the cupcakes.
