Valentine Wishes

This is just a short little post to wish you all a Happy Valentine’s Day. Look what I baked Hubby. It’s his favorite treat, a double layer white cake with a rich butter cream icing. The saying goes that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach but, for my man, I have to get past his sweet tooth before I can get anywhere else.

I spent a couple of hours getting this ready on Sunday afternoon. Hubby was upstairs and he figured I was making cupcakes but I fooled him. He was pretty pleased to get the cake instead.

I got a lovely red mini rose bush and a really sweet card. These plants are great, I’ve had them before. Later this spring I’ll be able to plant it outside where it may last a few years.

That’s all for now I guess. We had had another storm to day and more is expected overnight. Blah… How long until spring?

and the same to you Happy Valentine's Day.
That's one big cake for your hubby! I bet he was delighted with it.

Love your cake, but I am not a baker and this would be a nightmare for me to try. I can just about manage a packet mix of cupcakes LoL

Thanks for dropping by my blog.

Fresh cake, lucky man! My poor hubby was left asking for the 'emergency chocolate' stashed away. Belated Valentine's Day to you.
