The REAL baking came in right when I came home from work. I decided to try my hand at this recipe: Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Nutella whipped cream. SO much respect for this person because they developed the recipe themselves! That's my huge hurdle for ever truly pursuing baking. I am waayyyy too far from being creative enough. But in any case, they were a hit! I'm so so happy. I really liked how the mixture was light and airy. I didn't think it was going to make for moist enough cupcakes but they were really good! And of course the Nutella whipped cream was freaking great.
|This is the finished product. Some were hearts others were circles.|
Also I wanted to say that a year ago today one of my best friends (who actually just got married last week) was visiting me last year in Ireland and we had an amazing Valentine's Day dinner which my then boyfriend was nice enough to let me have with just her. But I didn't know what was coming.. apparently. Haha. That's another story for another time.
So all in all, I hope everyone had a fantastic Valentine's Day, Red Day (if you're Korean) or dia de San Valentin if you espeak espanish! Those are the only cultures I know well so I swear I'm not leaving others out on purpose!
