Fat Tuesday

As most of you know, Tuesday was Fat Tuesday so I decided as a treat I would bake the Valentines heart cakes that we missed out on Sunday.

Remember the pan I bought? (At Clicks to the local peeps)
This is how they came out after I baked them on Monday night. They use about the dough of two cupcakes each of my standard cupcake recipe (Shayne, I thought this might be useful as you have one too) and came out brilliantly! I have to say that I love my Defy thermo fan oven and I will never be without one again if I have a say.

I then had my handy kitchen assistant and enthuiastic baker do the decorating.
I used them as the carrot in front of the donkey's nose and had 3 happy plates (empty plates) of dinner followed by 3 empty cake plates. They were yummy!
BTW I have given up Soda (especially Coke which I have suddenly developed a liking to). Have you given up anything for Lent?

  2. Yum, they look divine. I popped into clicks on tues to get another pan, but all gone.

    am going to try mine out when my function on sun is a thing of the past.

    i'd love to bake them, then fill that little heart indent with caramel or maybe strawberries or something, and then ice - what a surprise when you bite into them!

  9. Those are amazing! Trying not to lick my screen.

    I have recently given up Coke too. I am trying to pretend like I was never addicted to it.
