When hubby and I first started dating, Valentine’s Day was all about romance – picnics, candlelit dinners, roses, gifts, you name it!
Over twenty years later, blessed with 4 kids, although we don’t get caught up in the whole Valentine’s Day madness anymore we still celebrate the day. We have, however, brought the concept back to basics and celebrate love and all the joy it can bring…plain and simply.
In recent years we started a new little tradition where we enjoy a three course meal with the cherubs. They’re our biggest achievement and to have a Valentine’s Day dinner on our own just wouldn’t seem right!
Part of the menu is of course a special dessert. The chosen dessert this year is stunning individual brownie layer cakes sandwiched with strawberry frosting made with the all natural Buttercream Icing Mix from CSR Sugar.
Having developed a number of recipes over the past few months, I really love the fact that this product is completely free of artificial colours and preservatives, tastes amazing, and, I tell you what, it pipes absolutely beautifully.
I really hope you try this recipe for any special occasion and remember if you do, don’t forget to tag me or #mckrecipes so I can see what you’re baking!
Much love to everyone this Valentine’s Day!
