Top Valentine’s Day Baking Ideas
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, no doubt you’re thinking of numerous ways you can say “I love you” to that special someone. Instead of spending out a fortune on a piece of jewellery or another present, why not create something unique yourself?
Yes, you can always create some customised jewellery or something similar, but it isn’t as much fun as baking. Here are some great Valentine’s Day baking ideas to inspire you.
Heart Shaped Biscuits or Cookies
Biscuits and cookies are easy to make. They’re great fun, too, because you can customise them and create whatever you want. All you need is a heart shaped biscuit cutter and you’re all ready to go!
Okay, so it isn’t as straightforward as that, as you still need to make masterful red or pink icing, but sprinkles, and put your creative hat on to come up with something your partner will love, but it’s still a great way to create a yummy Valentine’s treat.
Keeping it simple with biscuits or cookies is fine, but it’s often better to be a little more elaborate and put in an extra little bit of effort. Cupcakes are also a huge craze that seems to be taking over the world right now, so what more reason do you need to make them for your partner?
Although they’re slightly harder than biscuits to perfect, you still have many options when it comes to customising flavours; you just need to remember consistency and texture are key. If you’re feeling brave you can even create giant cupcakes or make a whole cupcake tower. The possibilities are endless!
More couples choose to have romantic Valentine’s Day evenings in than ever before, so why not extend your attempts at baking far beyond cupcakes and biscuits? Soufflés are easy to make but a devil to get right, but if you can master it you’ll be loved even more. The hardest part, truth be told, is cooking it for just the right amount of time and then eating it before it collapses and starts to feel sorry for itself.
In terms of what you want to put in your soufflé, it is really up to you. Raspberries and strawberries are probably the most apt in terms of Valentine’s Day, but you could do whatever you like and then top with chocolate powder or sprinkles you and your partner choose.
There are many Valentine’s Day baking ideas you can embrace; which ones do you dare to try?
