Happy Sweet Valentine's 2012

I guess I am late again in my posting for this Valentine's Cupcakes... :-p


It was Sunday, and I have started back on my baking session on Friday night, with the chocolate banana cupcakes, 2 types of bread and a chocolate buttermilk cake, plus these Pink Valentine's Cupcakes... :))

How did I fare on those bakes??? That will have to wait for me to post them up once I get a chance. Meantime, I'll just post this recipe, a new cupcake recipe that I have gotten from my new recipe book. :-D

I must say these cupcakes are really soft and fluffy, FANTASTIC!!!

Pink Valentine's Cupcakes

I thought, maybe I could bake some cupcakes for hubby and my good friend. But thinking that my friend's hubby does not fancy chocolate at all... So I have to bake these cupcakes in vanilla flavours instead of chocolate, no doubt we all loved chocolate cupcakes very much, especially the kids...:))

Any using strawberry whipped cream, as my friend's hubby preferred stawberry too...:-p

Topped with chocolate stripes and little heart shapes icing decos...
Nic said these cupcakes are so pretty and she preferred the ones with the flowers.

Gave these little cupcakes to my friend and she was really surprised and happy...:))

Recipe for these yummy Yellow Cupcakes


2 1/3 cups cake flour (280g)

2 1/2 tsps baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup butter, softened (250g)
