With Sue McMahon

Difficulty Easy

Broken Video?

In this cupcake decorating tutorial, Sue shows you how to make these hidden surprise cupcakes. They look like ordinary cupcakes on the outside but when you cut into them, the surprise heart is revealed! These pretty cupcakes are topped with Swiss meringue buttercream which you can add a flavouring to, like champagne flavouring, to make it extra special. They are perfect for giving to a loved one on Valentine's day or to go alongside a large birthday cake! Download our All-In-One Sponge Cake recipe below, and check out our video showing you how to make Swiss Meringue Buttercream in the suggested videos below.
