♥ Happy Valentines day! ♥
I hope you are all enjoying your special day. This morning I was in the mood for baking, using the new cake pans that Earth Mama bought me which are shaped like ladybugs, butterflies and bumblebees. I decided to make “love bugs”. Arent they cute?! Chocolate cakes, with a pink buttercream frosting I made using this recipe. The only addition I made was I added more powdered sugar to give the frosting a thicker consistency.
Actually this is the only cute one. I’m still new to icing and frosting cakes so my first six couple attempts were absolute disasters. But this little guy turned out really cute. 🙂 What are your best cake frosting or decorating tips?
I made chocolate covered strawberries today at work and they were so decadent! Perfect for valentine’s day.
And if your still looking for a little valentines day dessert how about my “Take Me on a Date Cookies”? They will be perfect for your sweetie. 🙂
Keeping in the theme of valentines day, I sampled one of Suncake’s Heart Thrive vegan energy bars. I chose to try the poppy seed flavor this time and it was really yummy! With only a handful of ingredients including…
oats, brown rice syrup, brown rice flour, soy protein concentrate, dried plums, dried apples, poppy seeds, natural fruit juice, orange peel and lemon extract.
It was a perfect re-fueling snack for after my workout. One of the things I really like about this flavor is that the lemon flavor is not too overpowering, and the poppy seeds are able to show their true flavor.
I would definitely eat this flavor again!
I wanted to thank everyone for sharing your best tips and tricks for working your abs on my last post. It seems like many of you agree with me when I say that the “ab zone” seems to be one of the hardest ones to define. I’m thinking of starting up a little challenge, and doing the whole sh-bang. Taking before and after pictures and testing new methods and moves each week. Anyone up for a challenge?
Question of the day – How did you spend your valentines day?
