Rose cupcakes with hidden centres

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and what better way to spoil that special someone with our rose cupcakes with cute hearts hidden inside? Just be sure to start prepping them a few days in advance, as there’s quite a lot of cooling and freezing time involved.

MAKES 12 // COOKING TIME 2 hours, plus cooling and freezing time

250 g butter
500 g caster sugar
4 eggs

6. Add a few drops of red food colouring to the mixture and pour into a greased and lined loaf tin.
