One sweet February weekend, I was on a baking spree. I wanted to have some sort of dessert buffet for Valentine’s Day so I made cookies, cupcakes and pastillas (my nephew and niece did the finishing touches for this milky treat).
Baking homemade cookies has been my ultimate dream and I was able to achieve it with the help of a very easy to follow recipe from Baker Bettie. I stumbled on her recipe for Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies when I was looking for instructions on how to make cupcakes and cookies without baking soda. Here is my version of the cookies.
We gave a jar of my special cookies as a gift for my parents. I just added heart-shaped marshmallows to add a touch of VDay to our gift.
I also baked chocolate cupcakes using a box of Celebrations by Sharon Party Cupcake Mix and added cocoa powder for a chocolatey flavor.
For the cupcakes, I made cream cheese frosting topped with chocolate chips. I’m so happy that everyone liked these yummy cupcakes!
My Chocolate Cupcakes with Cream Cheese and Chocolate Chips go well with a cup of brewed coffee.
Gastronomically, this was how sweet my Valentine’s Day came to be. I’m hoping that I can bake this much for special occasions and that my output will be more delectable each time.
What about you? How do you make celebrations extra special?
