Hi guys welcome to my virgin kitchen its Becky
here. We are not at home again today its too loud
theres loads of drilling bagging going on uh instead we have come to my parents house
to do this where its nice and quiet um yeah and they are probably not going to know we
have been here until they watch this. So hi haha we are in your house haha. Now today I am showing you how to make some
amazing hidden heart cupcakes perfect for valentines day. Now if you want to give these cupcakes a go
you will find the full method and list of ingredients over on myvirginkitchen.com. but
the first thing we are going to do today is to make our red sponge for the hidden hearts
inside the cupcakes. So grab yourself a mixing bowl and you are
going to beat together the butter and sugar until its really nice and fluffy and pale
in colour. Next crack in your eggs one at a time and
give it a good mix together until its all combine. Then you are going to gently fold in the flour
and then you want to add in your red food colouring. So you can add in as much or as little as
you like here, depending on what colour you want your hearts. If you want them bright red or if you want
them a pinkie kind of light red colour that�s absolutely fine its up to you. Give it a good mix together until its well
combine and then you are just going to pour this batter into a greased and lined 8 inch
Victoria sandwich tin. You are then going to bake this in the oven
for about 15 minutes and when its done dont worry if you get it out and it looks a bit
under cooked because this sponge is going to get cooked again in the cupcake cases. Transfer this sponge to a wire rack to cool
down completely and then you are going to put it on to a flat surface so like a chopping
board and find a heart shaped couple couple cutter. We found a like a small heart shaped couple
haha is that for valentines day yeah thats a valentines day pun right there. Grab yourself a small heart shaped cutter
we had one yeah we found one in our draw we had loads. And then you are just going to um push it
into the red sponge work your way around the edge try and get as much sponge usage as you
can um yeah and gently pull out the heart shape and set them to one side. I then made a vanilla cake batter I did this
exactly the same way as I did the red cake batter but obviously didnt add any red food
colouring but I did add some baking powder some vanilla essence and also a drop of milk
as my mixture felt quite stiff. Then you are going to grab yourself a muffin
tin line it with some muffin cases and spoon a small amount of your vanilla cake batter
into the bottom of each cupcake case. You are then going to gently push in your
heart shaped cakes into the batter. Now dont let it the bottom of the cake cases
you just want it to gently sit into the batter. Now at this point Barry and I did get a bit
worried we looked at the heart shaped sponges and we realised that they were a little bit
too big. Our heart was too big it was just too big
but if you seen us on the vlog or on snap chat youll know that we carried on we just
kept going. We then poured in our vanilla cake batter
so that it was surrounding the heart just so that it came up level with the heart in
the cake case. Your then going to bake these in the oven
for 20 minutes and when they came out of the oven they looked humongous they were huge
we were like we have to stop. Yeah we stopped and at this point we thought
this isnt going to work we need to stop right there but Barry came to the rescue. He said lets just cut it in half so we cut
one cake in half and as if my magic there was a perfect heart shape inside the cupcake. We were amazed werent we yeah we managed to
bodge it and pull it off we were really surprised so we thought no we will carry on we will
cover the tops with icing and everything will be alright. So that is what we did while our cupcakes
were cooling down we made our buttercream. In a bowl I beat together some room temperature
butter until it was nice and pale in colour and then gradually added in a few spoonfuls
of icing sugar at a time and then gave it a good mix together until we got the right
consistency and all the icing sugar was used up. We then added a fefw drops of food colouring
we decided to go for pink a nice pale pink just a few drops and gave it a mix together. We transferred this into a piping bag and
added a generous amount of piped icing on top and finished with handful if sprinkles. And I have to say they looked amazing we were
a bit worried we got the cake all decorated looking nice and we went to cut it in half
and we thought which half what happens if we cut it the wrong way the hearts not going
to be the right way. But luckily we were so lucky we just gussed
it and yeah we got the heart the right way and they looked amazing. So remember if you need some valentines day

  3. Hmm, im not sure if this would work that well. Youd think the pre cooked cake would get dry by the time the batter cooked.

  4. Not that I don't enjoy the vids with Barry but I am really liking that we are getting more and more vids with Mrs Barry aka Becky. πŸ‘

  5. Wow Becky this is your best yet! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘

  6. I don't know what you did with the excess red cake but an idea would be to crumble them up & make them into cake pops! I am definitely making this recipe!! Thanks! Xo

  7. I <3 these… sorry, I meant I >3>Β£3.Β£>3>Β£>Β£3Β£>Β£< these… see what I did there? I hid the heart lol

  8. i love how elegant they look, the pale pink frosting was subtle but a beautiful part of the cupcake, Great Video!!!

  9. That's not how you do the heart A better way of doing it is cutting circles and then making then a cone and then on the flat side making o hole in the centre and rounding the corners. That way it is a heart no matter which angle you cut

  10. I love these baking and all the videos you make Barry and Becky. I have made a few of the recipes I seen on this channel and they were spot on. Keep up the great work guys.

  11. There's a big space in the top right corner where you can put a link to the previous video – rather than over your wife's face….

  12. Cute idea, but does anyone actually cut cupcakes in half before they eat them? I think this would work better on a big cake, which has to be cut open before it is eaten. That way, people would definitely see the heart inside.

  13. Becky's decorating skills have definitely improved. She used to make really low flat swirls on cupcakes, but now she doesn't. It used to bother me for some reason.

  14. one will not hurt
    ends in the floor, covered with cupcake wrapper and cream and lamenting about his life

  15. that's a really great idea but you don't have to just do this for Valentine's day I don't know if you have baby showers like we do in the states but we do a gender reveal with cup cakes
