My lovely friends Hannah and Ben recently got engaged. Ben proposed in a French woodland with fizz at the ready and handmade “marry me” bunting strung up between the trees. Trés romantique! As love is in the air I thought love bird cupcakes would be a fitting engagement treat for them and their baby boy.

I modelled the love birds out of fondant and added a bit of sparkle with edible glitter. I did the fondant work a good few days in advance to allow the pieces to dry out. I used the following trusted recipe for the vanilla cupcakes http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/cupcakes_93722
