Valentine Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

Me and Isla decided to make some valentine cupcakes for Daddy, we generally bake while Archie is sleeping so we can have some quality time together, she really enjoys it and feels like such a big girl being able to get involved and help me cook. So we made some chocolate chip cupcakes and decorated them appropriately for Valentine's Day. We had so much fun and the outcome was very yummy indeed.

For this recipe I used: 

- 3 medium eggs
- 150g butter
- 150g self raising flour 
- 150g caster sugar 
- 75g chocolate chips
- ready to roll icing 
- edible decorations

The method I used is very simple:

- Turn the oven to 180 degrees
- put the eggs, sugar, flour, butter and chocolate chips into a bowl
- mix it all until smooth
- pop the mixture evenly into the paper cases
- bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes
- once cooked place on a cooling rack
- roll out your icing and using cookie cutters cut the shapes you like
- decorate how you like 
- enjoy with a cup of tea

 ^ rolling out the icing all by herself!

... And the finished result
