Who said that men do not like to cook, delicious recipe for this February 14 surprises your girlfriend with this little detail of cupcakes in the shape of a heart.


10 portions
  • 100 grams flour, (for the mass)
  • 60 grams butter, (for the mass)
  • 120 grams sugar, (for the mass)
  • 1 egg, (for the mass)
  • 1/2 lemon zest, (for the mass)
  • 70 milliliters milk, (for the mass)
  • 1 pinch salt, (for the mass)
  • 1/2 teaspoons dry yeast, (for the mass)
  • peach jam, (for the mass)
  • 500 grams powdered sugar, (for the fondant)
  • 250 grams marshmallow, rose (for the fondant)
  • 2 tablespoons Water, (for the fondant)


For the cupcake dough: Preheat the oven to 180 degrees as always. Mix in a bowl the butter (at room temperature or with 5 seconds of microwave) with the sugar until there is a homogeneous mass. Add the egg to the mixture, continue beating until well incorporated and add the lemon zest. We sift in a separate bowl the flour with the yeast and we are throwing it into the previous mixture interspersed with 70 milliliters of milk.
Grease the silicon mold of hearts with a little butter and pour the mixture filling only 1/3 of the mold, since we should not raise the dough much to cover it well with the fondant. We introduce in the oven and let it be done for about 20 minutes.
Once they are baked, unmold them and let them cool on a rack. When they are cold, with a disheartening (or if we do not have a knife) we remove a small piece of the central area, which will be where we add the apricot jam. The piece that we have removed can be put back as a cover.
For the fondant mass: In a bowl we throw the clouds with two tablespoons of water, put it in the microwave for about 5 minutes at medium power (or 3 minutes at high power) or until we see that the clouds have melted. The mass that comes out looks like chewing gum. It is very very sticky. Next, on a work surface, we toss the icing sugar, and over it we will dump the mass of the clouds. We are kneading with the hands covered with sugar until we get a homogeneous ball like the one in the photo. If we have problems kneading because the dough is very hard, we can put it 5 or 10 seconds in the microwave to make it more malleable. When finished, wrap the fondant ball in plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for at least one day before use.
To finish: spread the dough to 3 millimeters thick and cut a larger circle the cupcake in the shape of a heart and paste the dough running very well with the fingers for the base cut in the same way as the heart and paste soaking with a little of milk helping you with a brush.


Decorate with pearl candies.


Put a little vegetable butter on your hands to mold the fondant dough.
