Happy Valentine’s Day!

To heck with the pre-wedding diet — it’s Valentine’s Day so I ate a cupcake!

Valentine Cupcakes

I used the Magnolia Cupcake recipe and it was the maiden voyage of the spiffy new cupcake pan from Williams Sonoma that TheFirstChild and SweetiePie gave me for Christmas. It’s awesome — it holds 24 cupcakes, it fills the whole oven, and I love it!

If you’re on a diet, give it a rest and have something fattening today. I hope you very sweet bloggy peeps have a Divine Valentine’s Day!

  30. If only I could reach into the computer and get one of those cupcakes…I love frosting!

  31. 30 comments! Just for pictures of cupcakes… Hmm.

    My comments are getting a bit thin on the ground recently. Note to self: stop writing about books and start posting pictures of food.

    Happy Valentine’s Day – rather late.
