Valentines Day Cake
Are you looking for a fabulous recipe, so you can make a delicious treat for your special dreamboat? Or are you going to be single on Valentine’s day and need a lip-smacking good cake to cheer you up?
Well look no further!
I have a tasty spicy cake you can make, as well as an easy topper to express your love.
I know, I’m just too generous.
Well, first things first. I shall start with the cake. For well over a year Mr Lemon Drizzle (my very own dreamboat) has been asking me to make him zingerbread (made-up-name). He described it as gingerbread with lime, and pontificated about how it would amaze the world with it’s awesomeness! After he has been pestering and pestering me for what feels like forever, I have been worn down. So, I decided to make it for him, as a Valentine’s Day treat.
I made the cake yesterday and wouldn’t let him eat it as I had to wait for today to take pictures, but I gave him some cake shaving with some buttercream, and he became very excited and repeatedly shouted ‘I was right!’ and ‘In your face gingerbread!’…from which I gather it is a success.
This is the recipe for the cake
I then made a syrup of rum, lime and sugar to brush onto the cake and I filled it with lime buttercream.
As you will be too busy romancing to decorate your cake in any complicated way, I have painted a cupid for you to add. Just right click onto the picture below and download the cupid. Print him off onto card and then cut him out and attach a cocktail stick to the back. Don’t forget to add your own message.
