Hidden Rolo Cupcakes

Whilst rifling through the cupboards the other day i came across my Christmas cupcake goodies. So i thought i would give some of them a try and make some Valentines cupcakes and after rolo's caught my eye from the supermarket shelf i had a plan.

I made 24 vanilla cupcakes using a basic sponge receipe, once the cakes had cooled i then set to work with one of my new gadgets the cupcake corer. Using the corer to remove the centre of the cupcake, i placed a single rolo inside the cupcake, i then used  the piece of removed cake to create a 'lid' for the cake to seal in the rolo.

To finish i piped pink and white buttercream swirls on to the cakes using a 1M nozzle. I then sprinkled with tiny red and white heart valentine's cupcake decorations from Just Bake.
