Valentine Treats

It’s nearly Valentine’s Day. I never used to pay much attention to the day, mainly because I thought it was invented to encourage couples to spend money on gifts and cards. But after researching the history of the holiday, I found its roots stretched back into Roman history and ancient Pagan festivals. I wrote about this history last year in A Tale Of Two Valentines.

To celebrate this year, I worked on a Valentine’s Cupcake and Anne Belov did some gorgeous Cupid Panda illustrations to go with it. If you want to see Anne’s adorable pandas and my recipe, it has been published on They Draw and Cook.

Apart from eating cupcakes, I’ll be celebrating Valentine’s Day by spending time with some of my favourite animals. What will you be doing?
