Cupid's Cupcakes

Happy Valentine's Day! 
I'm usually a disaster in the kitchen, but wanted to attempt to make some Valentine's Day cupcakes! My Nanna bought me this book for Christmas, (probably in a desperate attempt to make me more domesticated!) and it's actually really easy to follow. All of the cakes in the book are different takes on one basic muffin mix and there are 100 different recipes to choose from including savoury and healthy options.

I used the Birthday Muffin recipe (as it looked the easiest and least ingredients!) which is just a sponge cake with butter cream icing. I was then planning on sprinkling edible sugar hearts on top, which I paid £4 for yesterday, but I lost them! So instead he's got to settle for a Haribo sweet and pink sprinkles.. but I think they look really cute! I wish I'd added red food colouring to the sponge too, to make them more Valentine's themed...

Not bad for a first attempt! Tonight, we're going to Pizza Express- they're doing heart shaped dough-balls!! Now I'm off to have a hot bubble bath and paint my nails! What are you guys doing tonight?
