I got cracking with the heart shaped muffin pan they sent and made these Strawberry Sweethearts - the recipe is on the packaging but it's a basic cupcake recipe using vegetable oil instead of butter, and adding some strawberry pulp and red colouring.
I decorated them with white chocolate hearts and fruit jelly hearts and gave them a spritz of silver shimmer spray to glam them up. The shaped pan gives a lovely 3D design to the cakes although I will admit there were a few casualties getting them out. Next time I'll use more non-stick baking spray.
We also have a heart-shaped hard boiled egg made with this clever mould. It's very simple to do. Hard boil your egg by adding to a pan of cold water, bring to the boil then simmer for 10 minutes. Plunge into cold water for a few minutes then peel off the shell. Pop it into the mould and I leave mine overnight in the fridge before removing from the mould and adding to the lunchbox. It's a really fun way to liven up food.
I've added a 'queen of hearts' jam sandwich made using heart shaped cookie cutters. I use cutters a lot for making different shaped sandwiches and flatbreads.
I've also included a small waxed cheese with a little cut-out heart; some strawberries which are naturally heart-shaped if you hull them and cut them in half or into slices; some fruit jelly hearts and a smoothie bottle which I've re-labelled as 'love potion' (feel free to download and print my label).
If you'd like to have a go at your own heart themed lunchbox, either for your child or your partner then you can win an egg mould and a set of cookie cutters here courtesy of Unique Home Living.
