How to make heart shaped cupcakes

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

As I have mentioned previously we don’t ‘do’ Valentines Day here.  But… maybe I’m wrong, maybe ‘I’ do do Valentines, I like to put a little note in the kids and hubbys lunch boxes along with a little red heart chocolate.  Just something simple to let them know they are loved.  I’m actually going shopping this weekend with mr 10 as he wants to by his ‘girlfriend’ a card and small gift (ooh too sweet).

I recently found a pin on Pinterest showing how to make heart shaped cupcakes and really wanted to try it.  Perfect little cupcake for valentines day!!

I used a Greens Golden Butter Cake packet mix to make the cupcakes.  Line tin (I use a muffin tin) with patty cases, fill cases with cake batter, add a marble to each muffin hole to indent the case into a heart shape.

Ice and decorate

 Tried, tested and worked!!  They look so sweet!  So maybe I do do Valentines Day after all 🙂

I tried the heart shaped cupcakes but they did not come out that way . do you only use 1 marble? Do you put it in the pan before the batter or after?
