Cake of the Month - February

Here is our Valentine's cake! The heart "candy box" is a chocolate cake covered in chocolate frosting. It's topped with white gum paste and wrapped with red gum paste. The chocolate candies or truffles are actually cake pops.

Body Scrub

This is a fun homemade gift to give a Valentine! It works wonders and makes your skin so soft! My favorite thing about it? I had all the ingredients in my pantry!

Body Scrub
2 C brown sugar
1/2-3/4 C oil - depends on the type of texture you like
5 TBSP honey
1-2 tsp vanilla

Mix it all together in a bowl and find a cute glass container to store it in!

Easy Valentine Treat

We have this wonderful candy store in Galena on Main Street called Galena Kandy Kitchen and every time my husband and I take a trip to Main Street we always stock up on their yummy candies and homemade confections. I always eye, but never buy, the chocolate covered oreos.

So this year for Valentine's Day I thought I would try my hand at making my own.
They were so easy to do and took maybe a half hour from start to finish. I knew I wanted to use pink and red sprinkles, so instead of dipping the oreos in milk chocolate, I used almond bark. I added a teaspoon of shortening per four squares of bark to make it easier to dip the cookies.

I promise they taste as good as they look!

A Valentine gift coming up tomorrow!
