Create a heart-shaped, egg-shaped or nearly any shaped cupcakes with standard or rectangle cupcake pans and foil. For the heart, roll foil in a ball the size of a marble and form flat rectangle foil pieces (for the sides). Put foil ball into cupcake pan cavity. Place cupcake paper in tin, using the foil ball to shape the top. Fill with cake batter. Place foil rectangles in place to shape a point. Bake as directed in recipe. The foil technique may be used for any desired shape.
