Oh Valentine's Day... I was ambitious this year & baked a cake for Paul from scratch. Paul loves his sweets and I found the perfect recipe on pinterest. I skipped on the espresso powder - they didn't have it at the grocery store. Instead, I added more cocoa - couldn't hurt, right?
He arrived just as I was taking the pans out of the oven...
We frosted the cake together and I added the finishing touches...
The cake turned out better than I expected. We cooked dinner - steaks, roasted red potatoes, and salad - and watched a movie. He took half the cake home... I think he liked it.
Hope you had a sweet Valentine's Day!
