Valentine's Day Fruit Platter
Valentines Cupcakes for Two
I took two cupcakes. I usually have some in the freezer. It is a good idea so that you can take them out and by the time it is decorated they will be defrosted. If you want to make some cakes check out the ARCHIVES for lots of CUPCAKE RECIPES,
I added chocolate drops to the cupcakes. You could make them stick by adding some melted apricot jam, some cream cheese or some butter cream. I made some hearts from ready to roll icing and a small heart shaped cutter. I added some fresh fruit cocktail kebabs and if you dust off with some white icing sugar or cocoa it gives a good finishing touch
Valentines Candle Cupcake Platter
Use some of the cupcakes recipes in the Archives such as chocolate, lemon and orange.
Valentines Cupcakes with Strawberries
These cupcakes can be chocolate or ginger recipe. They are for those of us who prefer the flavours of fresh fruit to frostings. I prepared some fresh fruit, strawberries and grapes. The strawberries are like fresh fruit hearts just perfect for Valentines Day. These would be the perfect end to a meal for two.
You could add some fresh cream, natural yogurt, vanilla ice cream or creme fraiche to the platter. A coulis of strawberry or raspberries would be delicious to top this off. Presentation is key to this. Prepare all ingredients and then I start in the centre and work outwards creating symmetry. Leave spaces for the creams to add just before serving. I used rosemary leaves and fresh flowers from the garden.
Chocolate Hearts Valentines Cupcakes
ST VALENTINES CUPCAKES
I took a mixed spice and fruit cupcake recipe. This was the basic cupcake recipe with dates, glace cherries and sultanas added to the mixture. I then put a thin layer of apricot jam on the top and added fresh raspberries. I topped it off with a candle. For Valentines I will light two candles.

VALENTINES DAY CUPCAKES RECIPES
Why not make some Valentine cupcakes to treat someone you love and make a lovely presentation of them for the day.
I have made these cupcakes as an example of what can be done with some coloured icings, sprinkles, glitter writing icing and coloured hearts cut out of rolled ready made icing using a heart shaped metal cutter.
These cupcakes are the basic recipe plus I added some mixed spice, cherries and sultanas. I bought some cupcake cases with hearts on them. These are cooling down and going to be decorated.
