Valentines Cupcakes

Happy Valentines Day!

I'm not usually one to make a big deal of Valentines Day, I'm in the camp that thinks it's all a bit too commercial. However I was unable to resist making some valentine themed cupcakes after seeing some of the other amazing treats people have been making and since I don't have anyone to buy me flowers this year it's up to me to treat myself.

These Nutella and Cinnamon Cupcakes are pretty indulgent but they are one of my favourite cupcake recipes so they're perfect for a valentines treat.

I had great fun making the decorations, using red fondant and heart shaped cookie cutters to create some romantic cakes.

I suppose I should really share some of these with my loved ones but I could quite happily eat them all myself.

Have you baked anything for your valentine (or yourself) this week?
