Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day! I hope EVERYONE has a WONDERFUL DAY even the one’s who think its a silly holiday! It’s one more reason to celebrate “US” AMAZING WOMEN! I kicked off my morning with a heart inspired V-Day Breakfast in the spirit of Valentines Day. I cooked turkey bacon, heart shaped sunny side up egg, heart shaped potatoes, grapefruit, orange, and I garnished with parsley for color! I have a heart shaped mold that allowed me to make the sunny side up egg and I used a heart shaped cookie cutter to make the heart shaped potatoes! Ta-Da! You now have a V-Day inspired breakfast. 🙂

Ingredients
1 Box Classic White Cake
Milk (replace water with milk)
Butter (replace oil with butter)
Eggs
Pink Food Color
Icing
2 Sticks of Unsalted Butter
1 tsp of Vanilla
3 Cups of Powdered Sugar
2 tbsp of Heavy Whipping Cream
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix your ingredients according to the back of the box but substitute the milk and butter in place of the water and oil. Mix really well until no lumps and place in a piping bag (homemade or store bought piping bag). Once, its mixed well add your pink food color until you reach your desired pink color. Take a baking sheet and line with parchment paper. Now take a hear shaped cookie cutter (any size of your choice) and draw hearts onto your parchment paper. This will be the outline that you pipe your batter into to bake. Take your piping bag and pipe your batter in the shape of a heart inside of your outlined heart. You want to stay an inch or more away from the lines. The batter expands when it bakes. Now, pop into your oven and bake for 8 minutes. Place on a cooling rack or a counter top with wax paper to cool. Finish baking your remaining batter. Once cooled make your icing, place into a piping bag and fill your hearts! You now have a whoopie Pie!
