Isn’t the new year going by way to quick? Soon there will be the next holiday: Valentine’s Day! I have just closed the Christmas and New Years Eve chapter and now I have to come up with something sweet for my sweetheart within a few days.
But maybe only I feel like time is flying by? I have to confess that the last few weekends were just so busy and full of events that somehow I lost the feeling for time. This is also the reason why I haven’t come up with some Valentine’s treats just yet… However, I am planning a little something for the breakfast table for my Valentine’s Darling, but *sshhht* obviously I cannot give more hints just yet, you have to wait and see until the weekend 😉
But for now I want to give you a quick overview of the Valentine’s treats I made last year and maybe you feel inspired by them. I also looked at other blogs and found some nice ideas and here I want so share my top 5 favorites with you!
Beetroot Red Velvet Heart
This cake in heart form is naturally colored using beetroot. The beetroot not only provides the color for this cake but also adds moisture! It is almost like a brownie, super delicious! If you don’t want it that moist, add a little flour to get a more cake like structure. If I would do this cake again I would go for a thick cream cheese frosting, I think this is still a classical combination. (Beetroot Red Velvet Heart Cake)
Stained Glass Heart Cookies
I still love the idea of Stained Glass Cookies, whether it is for Christmas on a tree or for Valentines Day for your loved ones! It is so much easier than you can imagine and the result is a real eye catcher! (Stained Glass Heart Cookies)
Brush Embroidery Cookies
I wanted to try this technique for such a long time, and when I ended up with way too many heart cookies I knew it was time to get practicing. Again, it only needs a little time until you can master this technique and I guess that it would look especially great on some flowers for spring? Give it a try as the final cookies look just gorgeous. (Brush Embroidery Cookies)
I wish you a lovely Valentine’s Day, however you want to spend it <3
Feel loved, Rebecca
