WHAT YOU NEED:

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

That’s quite a bit of icing sugar – obviously not something you’d wanna make everyday!But it’s going to make lots of love hearts so there will be lots to share around.

WHAT TO DO:

1. In a small saucepan, heat the glucose syrup, water and gelatine over low heat until the gelatine 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 out on a really clean work bench and start kneading your dough until it’s shiny.
5. You might need to sprinkle down a bit more icing sugar as you go to make it easier to knead.
6. Now flatten out the dough with your hands, and add a few drops each of pink food colouring and strawberry essence. Knead it through the dough until it is mixed in.
7. Roll the mixture out to about ½ cm thickness onto a sheet of baking paper.
8. Grab a heart shape cookie cutter and cut out as many hearts as you can!

Once they’re all cut out, you can lay them out on a baking-paper lined tray and leave them to dry out overnight.
