Tomorrow is Valentine's Day so my  Valentine gift to all of you is a post of sweet, amazing Valentine treats.

We will start the day off with a fabulous Valentine Breakfast.  For those of us who are eating healthy some simple heart shaped pancakes with fruit or some delicious yogurt with fruit skewers is just the treat.  Now if you want to be a little or a lot sinful how about a Valentine Crepe Cake.  Oh how I would love this.  Delicious paper thin crepes sandwiched between whip cream and topped with strawberries....yummm.  Now for the really sinful breakfast.  The CHOCOLATE OMBRE PANCAKES from TWO LOVES STUDIO BLOG would make anyones Valentine's Day special, oh I wish I could eat something like this but I am being a good girl this year.

For lunch how about some coffee or tea and a cookie.  You can get elaborate and make something like the first tray,  love those, or  go simple.  An iced shortbread cookie with heart sprinkles are lovely too.

I am a macaroon girl myself.  I love a really good macaroon.  Make them, if you are good at it, or find a really good bakery who specialize in them.  Now here is a cookie, well sort of a cookie.  Meringues are actually very easy to make and very low calorie.  They are fun to add colour too and pipe in rose shapes like these beautiful rose cookies, you will find the recipe and a lot more at SUGARKISSED BLOG,  You can also make a yummy dessert and fill them with whipped cream or ice cream and top with berries, these treats can be found at PAULA DEAN MAGAZINE.COM.

Now for dessert after dinner.  How about some cupcakes.  These beauties, little jewels, are not hard to make ( except the pot of cupcake flowers, which is just breathtaking).  Some sugar hearts, glitter sugar, a good rose tip and off you go.  Who would not like a box of rose cupcakes from their sweetie or a tiny heart cupcake.  The sweet vanilla cupcakes topped with cupid's arrow can be found on MOMMY SHORTS BLOG  along with a lot of fun Valentine's ideas.

If you really want to get Valentine Dessert crazy, make a spectacular Valentine Cake.  The first one I put on just because it amazed me.  I could not find the tutorial but apparently it is not that hard to do.  The chalkboard cake is my favourite.  Oh i just love this and the I LOVE YOU CAKE is something I, even as a really good cake maker, cannot figure out how it was done and I could not find the instructions online.

You can do a simple strawberry shortcake, you can even use a ready made Pound or Angel Food cake for this one.  I really like the idea of Red Velvet Cake in a Jar, so simple but it really look nice, this recipe is at SUGAR HERO BLOG.

I have one last treat for you, simple, delicious and looks quite impressive.  No time to bake?  Can't bake or decorate?  Dip some plump cherries in white chocolate, or dark if you prefer and sprinkle with Dragees which you can find in any grocery store.  Forget chocolate dipped strawberries these lovelies are the way to go this Valentine's Day.

Whatever you do, make or buy, ENJOY!!!!
