Despite the fact that I pin a lot of pastry on my Pinterest page, the truth is, I'm not about to make any of those things. I HATE to bake. Flour gets everywhere, sticky substances like shortening are hard to clean, you have to be exact with measurements, etc. In my opinion, the ROI on baking is low. I love to cook. Hate to bake.
That's why I'll be ordering my Valentine's Day treats from our recent MommyBeta Podcast sponsor Bake Me A Wish. My husband likes to order Christmas cakes to our family from this site and he received a birthday cake from here last month and it was heaven! This site is great! There are over 25 flavors and they gaurantee delivery on the date of your ocassion.
Now, I'm not a big romantic when it comes to Valentine's Day. I've been known to spend this evening in the grocery store. But my husband likes to make the effort and make dinner reservations so I figured I should too. But I'm not sifting flour for a holiday that I barely even observe. I'll do that for Santa but not for St. Valentine. For that, I'll break out the credit card.
Send a cake for your loved ones this contrived holiday 'o' love and let us know how it goes!
Signed, the non-romantic pregnant mommy who is really just in it for the cake!
