7 sweet things to bake for Valentine’s Day (or just because)

As a crafter, you’ve probably built yourself a pretty great reputation for being an excellent gift-giver (all the high-fives to you!). So this year, let’s do something creative in the kitchen, not quite out of our comfort zone – we do love cake decorating – but just different enough to give us a creativity boost.

So, are you’re planning to bake something sweet for your annual Galentine’s get-together? Or will you be spending the next week convincing your other half that a Valentine’s breakfast in bed has always consisted of a tray load of cupcakes, tea, and maybe a blush pink rose (if there’s room)?

Take a peek at these cupcakes, biscuits and macaron recipes below…
