It’s time for all things heart shaped, kind words and date nights. Or, at least for sharing a bottle of wine in front of the TV and some Valentine Vanilla Cupcakes after dinner,  which is probably as far as we’ll stretch in our house. I have to admit I’m not the most romantic person so my efforts are sometimes not the most thought through but I do always try to show some love through cake.

I’ve had a real craving for some kind of coffee cake for a while. This despite the fact that I don’t really like coffee. I have only had about 10 cups of the stuff in my life so far. But then I guess eating cake is not like drinking a mug of it. Anyway, this recipe from the fantastic blog Brown Eyed Baker took my fancy and it didn’t disappoint. In fact, they are pretty amazing.

Check out these little trees of sweetness! So cute and the perfect fit for the school Winter Fair cake sale yesterday. A super simple and delicious vanilla cupcake, recipe courtesy of Peggy Porschen, that is fluffy, moist and light topped with some snow white buttercream and a tree decorated with glittery baubles!
