And just like that January is gone and February in all it’s candy heart glory is here! Sappy? Yes. Commercialized? Definitely. Fun? Absolutely! Despite the gushy, over the top romanticism of the day, I love Valentines Day. A day to celebrate love in all it’s forms – yes please. One of my favourite ways to celebrate the month of love, is with a Galentine’s Soiree. As a single woman well into her 30s, my girlfriends are my everything. My chosen family. The ones who support me, love me and cheer me on. Without them, I’d quiet simply be lost.
Is there anything more lovely than heart shaped ramekins?
Ramekins of all kinds are one of my absolute favorite things, there is something so special about making individual servings, it takes an already amazing recipe and elevates it instantly.
And speaking of amazing recipes, this Sugar Cookie Cake is just that. The cake is amazing on it’s own, baked in tart pans, pie dishes, a 1/4 cookie sheet or a pizza pan, but when I spied these adorable heart shaped ramekins at Michaels, I knew they would be perfect for this recipe on Valentine’s Day, topped with pink and red Smarties.
