A few pictures from earlier in the day, as you can see we really like to celebrate Valentine's Day around here! I know it's still 2 weeks away but it's my favourite holiday, which means as soon as February rolls around it's time to get the decorations up and do some festive baking. There are so many decorating tutorials floating Pinterest these days I told myself I'd try this one and this one and that's it!
I often go a little nuts with the baking but I'm trying to rein it in a bit this year so our sugar consumption isn't completely ridiculous. The problem is there are so many recipes to try! I finally made the Heritage Red Velvet Cake from Sprinkle Bakes (a baking blog I am obsessed with) and it was a lot trickier than I thought it would be. It turned out decent and tasted good so it was worth the effort I suppose.
Tavi seems to be getting in the holiday spirit too, she loves playing with my heart shaped cookie cutters and all the cupcake trays and has noticed that the Valentine's Day decorations are up. She's even old enough now that she can try some holiday treats, we've started introducing her to solid food now that she's gotten her top and bottom teeth in the front. If she's anything like her Dad I'm sure she'll love the sweets!
