I’m generally not one to celebrate Valentine’s Day but I thought I would try and get into the spirit and make a few things for this occassion.
Fancy some heart shaped cake pops? :) It sure wasn’t easy to do. I still have issues coating cake pops, especially heart shaped ones. I used this recipe from Not Quite Nigella and her Tim Tam Cookie Pop Recipe worked like a gem.
Fancy some heart macaron pops? :) I’m a big fan of macarons and do make them quite often. I sourced inspiration from Raspberri Cupcakes – someone of whom I admire with her wonderful macaron creations. Normal circular macarons are hard enough to make, let alone heart shaped ones. They aren’t perfect but at least you can still see a heart shape, sort of.
On the eve of Valentine’s Day, I wrapped some macaron pops with clear cellophane and tied the most ugliest bow with ribbon to give to my boy and some special girlfriends.
Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!
