I always used to call Valentines Day, a "Hallmark Holiday". However, I've realized that if you take away the chocolates, flowers and gifts; it's really not that bad of an idea. You don't need a significant other to tell someone you love them, pass on a smile, or say something nice to brighten someone's day.
I know I have already posted my sugar cookie recipe, but I am just so proud of myself that I have finally been improving on my royal icing skills. Decorated cookies always make great presents, because they are thoughtful and hopefully delish as well! (They usually are my boyfriend's favorite kind of present.) You can always find a cookie cutter for any occasion. My new favorite one is a high heeled pump. (Hobby Lobby and Michael's have an insane amount in every category imaginable)
With a little practice and a light dusting of powdered sugar all over my apartment, beautiful bakery quality results are possible.
Happy Valentines Day! I love you all!
