With Love...

These are coloured heart sugar cubes, which Were an idea that I saw in Peggy Porschen's 'pretty party cakes' book. I didn't know the best way to show them, so I took quite a few pictures, then I didn't know which one to pick for the post!

These were some chocolate valentines cupcakes that I made for my hubby. The recipe can be found at Dr Oetker. The Clear box and polka dot cupcake cases are from Cakescookiesandcraftssshop. The hearts and letters are made using regal icing mixed with red food colouring.You can get the cutters from amazon. The ribbon can be found at Craftyribbons.
The little pastel jug set is from John Lewis as is the pink heart silicone mould.

Happy Valentines day to one and all.xx


  1. I love your sugar hearts! I saw them on another blog and have to find time to make them. And love your chocolate cupcakes, my oven is broken and how do I miss it. Oetker is not a huge brand name here in America, but I was lucky enough to have a German friend and she introduced me to their products. I am so glad as I love the ones I have found!
    Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day!

  2. OH the sugar cubes are amazing...can they be homemade? And you are so lovely to make hubby some valentines cakes. Me? I would have handed them over, then taken them back and eaten them all! Laughing! xxxx
