Cupcakes it is one of the desserts my eldest loves helping me with. And as tomorrow is Valentine’s Day my eldest and I baked and decorated some cupcakes. We made big cupcakes and small cupcakes too.
And because Renshaw send us a decorating kit our life was made really easy.
valentine's day #cupcakes
Renshaw sent us the below products:

  • Soft Icing Snip and Swirl: vanilla, strawberry and chocolate
  • Decorations: Pink and White Pearls, Chocolate Beans and Multi-Coloured Sprinkles
  • Red Cupcake Cases
All we had to do is to make the actual cupcakes. On the Renshaw website we found the recipe for Vanilla Cupcakes but as we didn’t have any vanilla extract or essence we decided to replace it with rum essence. Well we put in some of them only for adults and in the others we put orange peel.

They were great and Kara had fun decorating them, licking her fingers and eating the actual cupcakes. Less than 24 hours since we made them we have only 4 left.


The snip and swirl soft icing is great as it is ready to use and if you don’t have any other pipping utensils you can still make some really nice cupcakes.


We mostly used the vanilla and strawberry icing as that was the wish of my daughter. And to make it even more interesting we mashed some strawberries and add them to the vanilla frosting. We didn’t actually mixed them so this is why the icing looks a bit more watery. 

Also we cut some strawberries and add them on top of the strawberry icing. 


The cupcakes were really tasty and even if I am on a diet i tried one this evening. The rum ones are really YUM!
There are lots of other interesting recipes on Renshaw website so even if you don’t have the time to buy anything for Valentine’s Day do visit the website. They have lots of recipes you can get inspired from and their icing packs are really good value.

I espeacially like the look of these lips and i’m thinking I need to make them soon:
