WHAT YOU NEED:

- ½ tsp unflavoured gelatin
- 2 tbs water
- 1 tsp glucose syrup
- 250g icing sugar (plus extra for rolling)
- Strawberry essence
- Pink food colouring
- Skewers
- Edible marker

WHAT TO DO:

1. In a small saucepan, heat the glucose syrup, water and gelatin over low heat until the gelatin has just dissolved – then take it off the heat and give it a stir.
2. Transfer your mixture to a large bowl along with 1/3 of your icing sugar. Mix it all together until combined with electric beaters on a low speed.
3. Add the next 1/3 of your icing sugar and mix until combined again. Then add the last of your icing sugar and keep mixing until you have firm dough.
4. Sprinkle some icing sugar and knead dough.
5. Now flatten out the dough with your hands, and add a few drops to each of pink food colouring and strawberry essence. Knead it through the dough until it is mixed in.
6. Roll the mixture out onto baking paper so it’s about 2 cm thick.
7. Grab a heart shape cookie cutter and cut out your heart shapes.
8. Lastly poke skewers up the bottom of your heart shapes and write a personal message on each one using an edible marker pen.
