To be my Valentine!
My creamy smooth, sugar sweet, butter rich valentine
I hope the feeling is mutual...
I adore Valentine's day.. in all it's kitschy sickly pink-sweet glory.
What better excuse could there be to indulge in so much sugar and butter than LOVE DAY?!
This valentine's called for a number of cake recipes that I've been eager to play with.
Honey and banana cupcakes with white chocolate cream cheese frosting, chocolate and espresso cupcakes with mascarpone frosting, a new yellow cake recipe that I've been curious about - paired with fresh strawberries and vanilla mousseline, chocolate cake with manuka honey boiled icing...aaaand a beautiful red velvet recipe with cream cheese frosting. *whiew*
Although there was a little struggle with my new oven (it takes time to get to know your new appliances) all the little treats came out smiling.
