Valentine Swirl Cupcakes

In all my pinning lately I found this yummy rainbow marbled cake to add to my Rainbow Board and then this great post for Valentine's Day cupcakes! Mmmm!!

I decided it was definitely necessary to make the Valentine's Day cupcakes and after finding love heart patty cases in Spotlight for a few dollars it was a sure thing!

I started out with my trusty Vanilla Cupcake Recipe as it's become a real favourite around here!

You need to split your batter into two even bowls.
and then colour with your two (or more) desired colours. Being Valentine's Day themed I stuck with pink and red!

Once you've coloured your batter layer teaspoons of alternating colours in your patty cases until they're 3/4 full. (The recipe I used made 24 cupcakes)

Cook according to your recipe and admire your swirly goodness when the buzzer goes off!

These were just delightful like this but it's always good to be extravagant when it comes to cupcakes! So I made a quick outing with Miss Daisy to a local lolly shop and scored these great lollies to top off our cute Valentine's Day inspired cupcakes!

Oh and I whipped this cute banner up last night after seeing this post here 
I used double sided tape so that I can reuse my beloved buttons once Valentine's Day has passed! 
Easy, just doilies, string, buttons and tape! Fun Fun!
