Happy Valentine's Day! I know a lot of people dislike this Hallmark holiday and all of the cheesy things that come along with it, but I love it. Last year I spent Valentine's Day sick in bed with my boyfriend because I had mono. This year I'm spending it with friends and over the weekend I'll celebrate it again when my boyfriend comes to visit. I love holidays like this because they're an excuse for me to spend the weekend prior baking and watching sappy love stories like The Notebook. Over this past weekend I went on a serious baking spree. On Saturday I made the Heart Shaped Red Velvet Whoopie Pies that I posted on Friday. On Sunday I made Conversation Heart Sugar Cookies. I used this recipe for the sugar cookies and this recipe for the royal icing. Let me tell you, royal icing is easy to make but piping it out in a perfect heart and then flooding each cookie takes hard work! By the time I was done icing them I was exhausted and barely wanted to write the messages on them. They weren't as perfect as the ones shown above but I was happy with the outcome. They tasted delicious and looked adorable.
