Hello everyone, I thought I would share a simple recipe to make some Valentine’s Day Cupcakes.
It is a simple blueberry sponge recipe topped with fluffy buttercream. You can then decorate them with your favourite red themed toppings. I’ve used a selection of crystallised rose petals and red sugar hearts.
If you aren’t into the whole Valentine’s theme then you can decorate them with extra blueberries or grated lemon zest. A lemon flavoured frosting rather than the vanilla also gives these cupcakes a nice twist.
