Valentines Cupcakes

The majority of my Sunday afternoon was spent making cupcakes with a friend. Well actually, the vast majority of it was spent making sure said friend hadn't got icing in her hair or let chocolate melt on the underfloor heated kitchen tiles (and failing on both accounts).

We used a simple fairy cake recipe for most of them, and then made an extra batch of chocolate ones with a gooey chocolate centre.

We decorated them with various icings and plenty of colourful toppings such as sugar balls, hearts, glitter, chocolate curls, cherries, jelly babies, hundreds and thousands and strands.

My favourites have to be the ones with a cherry sat on top.

While my friend utilised sweethearts to make them more valentines-ish.

I'm going to have to wait a while before I try one because we got too full eating cherries and licking spoons as we went along.
