One good thing about being stuck inside is the opportunity to get a few things done. I spent the day packing boxes for the impending move, doing laundry and I even managed to bake some chocolate chip cookies.
If you are stuck inside because of the snow and need something to do you could try baking these cupcakes. I originally saw this idea on Pinterest; it's super easy and you don't need any special decorating tools, only a heart shaped cookie cutter.
I used my favourtie chocolate cake recipe by Ina Garten that you can find here.
Trim off the top of each cupcake and cut out heart. I of course ate the hearts!
Spread with icing and then pop the top back on. Sift icing sugar on top just before serving.
(I am not big on food colouring, so I used a couple of teaspoons of strawberry jam to colour and flavour the icing.)
Keep warm everyone, I'll 'see' you on Monday.
