Valentine's Day may be a commercial holiday, and no, you shouldn't need a reason to express how you feel about your loved ones--you should do so every single day just because you are thankful they are there...but, let's be honest, if we have a good excuse to have chocolate or make treats, are we gonna give that up?
Nope, not me. I will take any excuse at all to make cupcakes.
That is my thing at the day job, children's baseball games, family gathering or parties--Stacy brings the cupcakes. And sometimes for no reason at all but that a cupcake = smiles and always makes people happy.
These ones are cherry chip with French vanilla icing, mini chocolate chips, and a strawberry Belgian chocolate on top.
The best part about cupcakes is they are easily adaptable for every holiday, every special event, and just to bring colour to a dreary week--a special way to show your special someones how much you care on Valentine's Day...or any day of the year.
And while you are baking/eating yummy cupcakes, why not read a Valentine's story sure to make you smile...
