I Heart Cupcakes
The only important thing to remember is when the cakes come out of the oven it is important to keep them all facing forward on the cooling rack as otherwise when you cut through the cakes, if the heart is not aligned, you will not get the desired effect. I put the cute 'Eat Me' toppers in when iced to show which way was forward.
The idea for these cupcakes originally came from Cupcake Takes The Cake. If you'd like to try them you can check out a video tutorial on the site.
It would be quite easy to adapt this idea to include different shapes and colours inside your cakes. You could even try writing a message... I had a go at 'I Love U' as you can see...I may need to play around with this a bit but it didn't turn out too bad.
You may also be thinking it's a little bit early for Valentine's Day, these are however my entry to Cakeboule's Virtual Valentines bake and craft competition 2012. So if you want to join in, why not hop over to Cakeboule's blog. The closing date is 4th February and you can enter both crafts and bakes.
