HAPPY VALENTINES DAY FROM THE MAD HOUSE ♥
Not fancying a solitary bottle of wine & a chick flick yesterday, I made 24 cupcakes to give out to my nearest & dearest (Which consists of three people – Haha!) and spread a bit of the Appreciation Feels.
Get Loved. Get Cake. Get Fat. Get Happy!
YOU WILL NEED:
100g/3.5oz Self Raising Flower
Optional: Pinch of cinnamon, Vanilla extract & a Handful of Porridge Oats.
PINK CAKE CASES: 100g White Chocolate
BLUE CAKE CASES: 150g Cadbury’s Wholenut
[★] Melt chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water. Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Pop cake cases into the holes in a muffin tin. If you’re between muffin tins like I am, any sort of baking tray is fine.
[★] Cream the Sugar & Butter until smooth, and beat the eggs in a separate bowl before adding these. Stir in the Chocolate and Optional: ingredients. Sift in the Flour and fold.
[★] Divide between the Cake cases and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool.
HAPPY HAMSTER CUPCAKES!
Using Marzipan & Food colouring, I followed this Tutorial:
I had such a laugh making these, the Lady in the video makes them look so effortless whereas mine look a bit confused – and NOT like stripey poo’s – Haha! I popped them on a bed of Pink Strawberry Frosting and delightedly showed the other half of Sukiwear when she popped over in the evening for another order swap, before sending her home with a tin.
CHOCOLATE BUTTERCREAM & HEART SPRINKLES
VANILLA & WHOLENUT HEARTS
I used a can of the Squirty Vanilla frosting for these – don’t ever buy it. Ridiculously expensive waste of money as it only did 6 cakes! I melted the remaining Wholenut chocolate into these heart moulds and sprinkled the top of the frosting with chopped nuts.
