Valentines day treats!!

Valentines Day Treats!!!

Hello lovely people, so in honor of valentines day I decided to make a few treats. I love all the pretty colors that go along with valentines like pink (which is my favorite) and red and purple and all those lovey dovey colors. So I decide to make some simple rice Krispy treats but added some pink food coloring and cut them out into hearts. I also decide to try these cake batter cupcakes with cake batter frosting and oh my sweetness. They are so good. I love the taste of cake batter and this frosting is delicious. I couldn't stop eating it. I also had to share some adorable pics of me sweet valentine. He's so stinking adorable. Happy valentines and hope you have a great vday!!




This is what the cake batter should look like.. I stirred mine a little too much probably.. you can see the dye off the sprinkles started running into the batter.




My sweet little valentine!!!


He is so seriously is so stinkin adorable!
