A little Valentine’s Day wander around the internetz

I’m not feeling very romantic today so I thought I’d give you a quick roundup of some lovely places to visit for some Valentine’s inspiration:

We’ll start our little culinary journey at The Glutton’s, with her gorgeous ♥ Apple and Salted Caramel Tart Fine ♥

Then it’s off to the lovely Babaduck’s to check out her rather gorgeous Tarte D’Amour.

Next, you must visit Cake in the Country and marvel at her Lady and the Tramp inspired spaghetti and meatballs

Then, we’re off to my lovely friend Julia at A Slice of Cherry Pie, for an oldie but goody – her lovely cinnamon hearts

… and Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be Valentine’s day without cupcakes – not particularly romantically inspired, these gorgeous Tropical Cupcakes from lovely Lucy the Teen Baker, would certainly hit the spot.

The incredibly talented Jules from The Butcher, The Baker has made these amazing Rolo cupcakes for her man.  They look utterly gorgeous – he’s a lucky fella!

Elra’s beautiful meringue hearts with citrus curd cream are almost too pretty to be eaten!

And last but not least, I’d like to suggest my very easy heart-shaped lemon and almond cake for your delectation…

If you’ve made something gorgeous for Valentine’s Day, do leave a comment and a link – I’d love to have a look.

And finally, here’s a romantic Valentine’s poem, from my wonderful sons:

Roses are red

Violets are blue

I’ve got a knife

Get in the van

    fabulous poem – have amused myself today by reading some classic Valentine’s messages – best was as follows;
    Your sideburns make my heart a-flutter,
    In your arms I turn to butter.
    Your guitar playing is so cool,
    Your manliness makes me drool.
    On your car a large spoiler,
    Let me be your bunny boiler!

    Makes me really laugh!!

    I’m not sure how I feel about your big brown knobbly heart. It reminds me of something but I just can’t put my finger on it.

    Th poem though, genuis. They should approach Hallmark about writing verses!

    I am expecting an email with the one you couldn’t publish …

    Love you long time xx
