Valentine’s cupcakes

Homemade Valentine's cupcakes

Here’s proof that Valentine’s Day needn’t be expensive or commercial.

I baked these cupcakes on Valentine’s Day, and iced them with those ready-made icing tubes you can buy in the supermarket, also using chocolate and multi-coloured sprinkles, and some glace cherries.  Easy peasy.

They made a lovely afternoon-tea gift for my parents-in-law, who have been married 44 years and are still very much in love. 

(I don’t know what it is about cupcakes, but it’s funny how a pretty, decorated cupcake can make the most hardened soul squeal with delight.)

      Thanks! They are a little “amateurish-y” – I made them while my toddler was napping – but there can be a charm about the slight imperfections of homemade baking, too.
