It feels like it would not be inappropriate to squeeze in one last wintry recipe before I hit you with the full on springy-ness of my spring kitchen. That's not to say there won't be cake in spring. Hellz no, there will be mucho cake, but it will be all pastel frosting, fluffy chicks, ballet shoes and such.
Why ballet shoes you ask?
You should know better than that by now.
Continue over the page for some notes and the recipe. You won't be sorry.
Happy St. Valentines Day to you.
May your life be filled with peace, love and joy.
Oh, and cake.
I wanted the perfect valentines food. It needed to be sweet, decadent, and meaningful. If cherries don't give you that I don't know what does.
Cherries can symbolise fertility, merrymaking, and festivity . Almonds represent the inner truth at the core of life.
A slab of this dense yellow cherry studded gloriousness is the epitome of love and desire.
Yes, I arranged cherries into a heart shape for you.
And, yes, I spent twenty minutes getting cherry sticky craziness off my table afterwards.
You are totally worth it.
