Happy Valentine's Day...

...everybody. Hope you all have wonderful plans to spend this day with someone special.

Here's a lil' hint on how to make a heart-shaped cake for your valentine when you don't have a heart-shaped pan (like me).

Bake a round cake and a square cake. When they cool down, cut the round cake in half. Turn the square cake to make a diamond shape and place each half round on the upper sides of the diamond. Spread that icing on thick (chocolate of course) and there you have it - A beautiful cake for your valentine!

Here is a picture of some pretty tulips that I'm sending to all my blogging friends on this Valentine's Day.

These two guys are my valentines - they are my everything actually.

"I am so glad that you are here - it helps me to realize how beautiful my world is." - Goethe

Happy Valentine's Wishes to you all!

You know Cathy, I was looking for a little something sweet to make for tomorrow... THANKS for your cake tip! Since I'm on the bandwagon with LOSING weight, I never got it together and thought about how much my Valentines would enjoy a sweet dessert tomorrow!

Hugs to you, Kimberly

Will cream cheese icing do...? ;)

Audrey said...

Thanks for the tulips! ;) I hope you have a Happy Valentine's Day too! Maybe lil' booger and I will make a trip to Cobblestone Farms tomorrow (that is, if I get my house cleaned!)

Thanks Cathy for the tip!! I've seen this tip somewhere before but totally forgot about it until I read your post.

And I absolutely LOVE your Valentine's display. TOO cute!! Tulips are my favorite!! I rather get a dozen of them instead of roses!!

Have a great weekend and an even better Valentine's Day!!
