Happy Valentine´s cupcakes!

DSC_0681Tomorrow is Valentine´s day. And for everyone who doesn´t have the right present yet or also wants to bake something for their loves, we have made some really delicious: Black forest strawberry cupcakes! We wanted to combine fruit and chocolate, and since we thought red and pink colors would be perfect for Valentine´s day we went for strawberries as fruit. We decorated our cupcake´s topping with fondant a special mass, which you can buy in cake supply shops. It´s a formable mass which you can roll and cut out shapes with. We also melted some white chocolate, filled it into a piping bag and drew hearts,…

Have a wonderful  day!
