Valentine’s Day is schmucky, schmaltzy and OTT. But sometimes it provides the perfect inspiration to get my ass back in the kitchen.
After a tear-inducing episode with a flopped milktart a few weeks back, I swore off the kitchen. We survived on take-aways, tins and toast. It was a dark time in our culinary lives…
But I finally made my return and decided to make it a grand one.
I used Colleen’s recipe because her recipes always turn out well (UNLIKE Beluga’s milktart recipe…).
However, the heart shape and the cute little icing clouds are all my own genius. And of course the pearls…
Thanks to our nice neighbours for planting the lovely nasturtiums and letting me steal one.
So take a bite and succumb to the wiles of Valentine’s Day.
