Day 6 - Cupcakes

For today's post we thought we'd get creative in the kitchen! Cupcakes have become really popular and as a result you can get them in pretty much any flavour you like. The ones that caught my eye were these red velvet cupcakes, which came out really moist and quite chocolatey - yum!

The icing I used was butter icing rather than the icing given in the recipe, but you could use whatever you like that would suit the chocolate flavour of the sponge.
Simply bake, ice and then decorate with cocoa powder, chocolate sprinkles, chocolate drops - whatever your favourite toppings are! Obviously I like chocolate :) The cupcake sponge has a beautiful deep red colour (hence the name!) which I thought was quite fitting for Valentine's Day.
Why not bake up some cupcakes for your Valentine? Pop them in a small box and tie up with ribbon, or serve them up on Valentine's Day weekend as a treat to share. Thanks for looking!

Tomorrow is the last day to order a candy gram in time for Valentine's Day on the 14th, so visit the Etsy store soon!

the red velvet cake looks such fun to make... but I don't think they would get as far as a box, let alone ribbon!
