As we all know, Valentines Day is rapidly approaching. I have to admit that this day has always been my favorite holiday (although many people strongly disagree and tell me I’m crazy). I think people forget that Valentines Day is a day for celebrating love- just general love. You do not have to be cuddling up with your significant other in a crowded restaurant filled with pink and red balloons (movie reference? I think so). It is a time to be with those people that mean the world to you. For you parents out there, I have found a deliciously sweet treat for your little ones that also helps you to avoid a sticky mess. I stumbled across a website called “PunchFork” which literally has hundreds of cupcake recipes (both savory and sweet). For Valentines Day, they have a recipe for Red Velvet cupcakes in a jar. I may be bias because red velvet is my FAVORITE cake recipe, but I cannot imagine a more fitting treat for this occasion.
