Feast: Sweets for my sweet

Yesterday was lovely (no pun intended) :)

Here's a pictoral of my St. Valentine's Day baking:

Heart-shaped cranberry scones. I first saw them on a blog and thought what a great idea. I totally forgot about cutting scones into shapes until a colleague asked me about cutting out brownies.







I thought these sugar cookies were rather nice unadorned...but I decided to play on those sweet-heart candies with messages on them:







I have since learned that I will never be a frilly cake decorator...I could barely get the gel nozzle thingie to work right :)








I had to do something that was a bit OTT in rosey sweetness: gaudy pink fairycakes--one fore every month The Fussy Eater and I have been together (more cakes than pictured here).







And a recipe-in-progress: Dense Blondes (the working title)--a very dense white chocolate cake that tastes very caramel-like. When I get it to a shareable point, I'll post the recipe.







cheers!

Hi Rorie and Jaay
Thanks -- hope your days were equally wonderful :)

TFE! You post! And here I thought you were going to lurk forever (tee hee).

I've taken to calling the fairycakes "little sugar bombs"--they don't taste all that sweet, but dear oh dear, TFE's blood reading afterwards :)
