So the other day i was cracking on with the time consuming task of transferring all the photo's from my iPhone to my laptop - I've been forced into this as my phone is now protesting severely at the 2,000 odd snaps i have clogging my memory and it refuses to work properly, grrr. Anyway, in doing so i came across this picture that i hadn't seen for a while and it really made me smile!
This is a snap of some little cupcakes i baked for Valentines Day last year (yes i am a soppy romantic sad case) and it got me thinking that i haven't actually baked at all since then! I love baking, infact i think most girls do.. and i'm not entirely sure why i haven't thought to do it again since. Now i have to admit this was very much a packet mix job and i by no means claim to be the next Betty Crocker, but i was pretty proud of them afterwards and couldn't wait to give them to the boyfriend..
From what i can remember Jay was pretty chuffed with them too and it was the perfect little something to give him without spending a fortune on a bunch of embarassing valentines tatt that as a boy he wouldn't even want anyway.. (yes Card Factory you are guilty of almost conning me into purchasing him one of those god awful mugs)
I am a bit of a romantic though, and no matter how much people try and tell me that Valentines is purely a money making scheme for shops i will always have a soft spot for it and secretly look forward to much more than i should! So i've decided that this year i'm going to get my bake on again! although maybe try something a little more impressive than this.. I'm on the hunt for the perfect recipe and hopefully i'll be posting again soon with pictures of masterpiece of a cake and not an update on how i burnt the house down haha!
Has anybody else got any nice Valentines ideas?
