Valentine’s day is peeking around the corner so of course everything pink, red and sugary cute will start appearing almost everywhere you go soon. If you’re planning on making your sweetheart something thoughtful and homemade this year we may just have the thing for you! Seriously, who could say no to a hopelessly romantic little puppy this Valentine’s Day? Especially one perched on top of a cupcake holding a sweet heart shaped ‘balloon’. We definitely couldn’t! If you’re a dab hand in the kitchen when it comes to making sweets you should head on over to Tala’s blog for our ridiculously adorable Valentine’s day cupcake tutorial! It’s easy enough for a complete novice to follow, but if you’re more advanced then it’ll still be perfect for you to whip up too.
You don’t even need to stick to cupcakes to impress your sweetheart. This love puppy would be perfect on top of bakery style cakes, tiered cakes or even giant fondant fancies (such a great idea). For larger cakes, however, remember to make your pup a little bigger in size in order to get proportions perfect. You really wouldn’t want your little puppy looking lost on top of a huge 12 inch gateaux!

One of the best things about this cute little puppy is that it’s pretty easy to personalise. You can use Tala’s letterpress kit to indent a romantic message into the iced cupcake surface or add your loved one’s initials onto the balloon. Why not even change the colors, create a small bundle of balloons or add a tiny floral bouquet using small flower plunger cutters? However you chose to customise your little love pup we’re sure it’ll be adorable!
