Valentine’s Bakery

I know it’s still a couple of days until Valentine’s Day, but it was weekend and I couldn’t wait to finally try the heart-shaped moulds my mum gave me for Christmas…

So, much to the pleasure of Sabrina who has a sweet tooth just like me, and a bit to the dismay of Graziella who is trying a new diet, I whipped up those chocolate cupcakes and decorated them with home made chocolate ganache. *yum*

Let me ask you, is there any better way to show your love than with chocolate cupcakes in heart-shape, topped with chocolate ganache and heart-shaped pink sprinkles? I don’t believe so… 😉

Hope you’ll have a sweet Valentine’s day! Love you all very much ❤

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Yes, yes, I know, I know. Valentine’s Day is a day just like every other and completely overrated. But let me tell you, it’s the best day to try out this new recipe I found.

Eventually it’s plain vanilla shortbread – but with colourful hearts inside! How cool is that? I am super happy with how they turned out, especially considering that it’s the first attempt. So yeah, this year I am gonna spread the love in cookie shape!

And the biggest one of all goes to my Mr. Man. Last week was particularly tough for me. I just started my new job and had to get used to getting up early, long commute, new colleagues and, well, the new job. Duh!
But what I want to say is, that when I came home in the evening, all grumpy and hungry, he cooked dinner and asked me how my day was. He’d put little surprise sweets in my lunchbox and texted me in my break. You know, the little things.

I know that sometimes I don’t see it. Sometimes I’m completely oblivious. But most of the times I notice. He’s always taking care of me. ❤ Because you know, it’s Valentine’s Day, and on Valentine’s Day you tell the truth. 😉

Lots of love,

XX, Angie
