Win a cookbook signed by Nigella in the February Cookalong!

Love Buns
Photo by James Merrell

This month’s Cookalong is especially for Valentine’s Day - Nigella’s recipe for Love Buns, a type of iced and decorated cupcake. Simply make your cake batter for the sponge base, and then bake in Valentine-inspired cake papers. Once they are cooked and cooled it’s time to get creative with some special meringue-based icing, whisked gently over a double boiler to make a thick and luscious topping, and then of course the sprinkles. So this Valentine’s Day impress the one you love – and of course the nigella.com team - and get baking, photograph the Love Buns, add your caption, then send it to us, and you will then be in the running to win a signed book of Nigella’s. We will upload your entry, and will announce the winner at the beginning of next month.
