Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is the first gift giving occasion of the new year and it’s just around the corner. Homemade gifts always mean that little bit more (unless my boyfriend is reading this, in which case nothing means more than Mulberry!) and if you’re struggling to think of the perfect gift for a partner or a friend, cupcakes are a great way to go. I spent my weekend playing around with various options for creating some Valentine’s cupcake decoration ideas to share with you.
1. Piped Buttercream Roses
This one's lovely and simple, with a closed star nozzle, starting from the centre of the cupcake, pipe the buttercream in a spiral to cover the top of the cupcake. Mix up the tradition and make up a 12 rose bouquet!
