For Your Valentine

It all comes around so quickly, doesn’t it? We’ve only just recovered from Christmas fever, and it’s already time for Valentine’s Day.

Chocolate and Valentine’s Day go hand in hand (you just can’t eat a bunch of flowers), and we’ve put together a few special ideas for the one you love. Say it with heart(s)!

The past few weeks

This poor blog has been very unloved over the past few weeks, so here’s a bumper picture post showing what we’ve been up to & where we’ve been.

Making eclairs is actually pretty easy if you don’t mind them looking a bit “homely”, but producing the perfect shape consistently is a different matter all together.
