I am a huge fan of holiday-themed crafts and treats, but for the most part I like them to be quick and simple.

While I know I can find custom cakes for any occasion everywhere from vintage cakes Sydney to NYC, there’s nothing quite like whipping up a simple treat at home.

That’s why I love these fun and easy heart shaped cupcakes! No special pan needed; just whip up your favourite cake batter, bake and decorate! The secret? Crumpled balls of aluminum foil in an ordinary muffin tin!
