Valentine's cupcakes

Yes, I know... once I'm done uploading pictures from the past 12 months I will be back on track with seasonal baking at the right time of year!

My boyfriend's mum gave me a silicon cupcake/muffin baking tray with heart shaped holes, so I couldn't resist using them to make some Valentine's cupcakes. The cakes themselves are red velvet, but I added some Silver Spoon strawberry flavouring. I didn't particularly like the way they tasted in the end, but I wasn't sure if that was because it tasted a bit artificial, or if I used too much, as I wasn't following a recipe.

I used the pink icing in a can from America that I mentioned in a previous post, and some really cute heart-shaped sprinkles and a few chewy sweets shaped like lips.

You'll have to forgive me for not posting recipes at this stage; while I'm uploading old pictures I'm struggling to even remember what kind of cake it was, let alone which recipe I used!
