What?! National Chocolate Cake Day?!

So, I was going to post something completely different for you today, makers. I felt it would be completely inappropriate, however, if my blurb today was about anything other than chocolate cake.



(Yes, the whole phrase needs to be capitalized.)


Most self-respecting, warm-blooded people I know have a special connection to chocolate cake.
Here are a couple links to some decadent chocolate cake recipes.

(note: All photos and recipes belong to their respective authors.
These were just too delicious looking to keep to myself!)

Valentine’s Day Quickie

Happy Saturday, Makers!

Here’s a little weekend reading material to get you prepped and pumped for Valentine’s Day. Take a look at these fabulous projects from around the internet!

(Oh, and don’t forget to check out our own ‘lil project – Valentine’s Mini Mailbox!)

Decorate: Valentine Pillows

Felt So Cute has a great project idea for some fun (and eco-friendly) decorative pillows featured at Blue Cricket Design. I don’t know about you, but I’m thinkin’ these little guys would look great all year ’round! LINK!

Devour: Oreo Kisses

Warning: You WILL want these treats.

Warning: You WILL try to read ALL of Bakerella’s recipes.

Okay, now that you’ve been warned, check out my *hands down* favorite super-sweet treat blog! Bakerella is best known for her Cake Pops, but WHOA. These Oreo Kiss Truffles make my mouth water and my sweet tooth ache. LINK!

Delight: Sweet Valentines Printables

Looking for adorable Valentines that you can print at home? These strawberry and cherry love notes are so stinkin’ cute, I can’t handle it. I know I may be a grown woman, but I just might have to give these out to my friends. Whatcha think? Tricia-Rennea Illustrations also provides tons of other adorable (and high quality!) printables and images to use. LINK!

And now, for our Question of the Day –

Plain fruit, Chocolate covered fruit or Chocolate covered chocolate?

Have a great weekend!
