All you need is love. And cupcakes.

“Cooking is like love, it should be entered into with abandon or not at all.”

– Julia Child

Just a short & sweet post today.

Nothing new. Nothing groundbreaking.

Just some good old fashioned Valentine’s stuff: red velvet cupcakes, little red hearts, etc. But with a twist… a black & white twist! And of course even the frosting had to have a little bit of black in it… so I made it a vanilla bean cream cheese frosting. Very simple: make a regular cream cheese frosting, and add the seeds from one half of a scraped out vanilla bean to it.

Black & white liners from sweet estelle’s baking supply, solid black liners from Layer Cake Shop. Cherry-flavored heart candies are from the drugstore, no idea what brand.

Tomorrow being Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d tell you all how much I appreciate & love you. You readers of mine make me blogging worth it. Your comments, both here & on my Facebook page & Instagram, and your tweets make my day. Every time. You’re all incredible. I say it all the time but it’s true- you make it worthwhile! I’ve met so many great people just through them commenting or following me on Social Media. It’s amazing.

So thank you, my hundreds & thousands of Valentines.

    When I look at your blog in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet
    Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted
    to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, wonderful blog!

    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?

    My site looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.
