I love Valentines day! I'm not certain why because nothing super exciting ever happens but I love the colors and the candy and of course, the LOVE! How cool that this little girls' blessing is on such a fun day? I was asked to make something similar to my other blessing cakes but add the Valentine theme in somewhere-design was still up to me. I have really wanted to try something different from my other ones. I've done, I think, about 4 blessing cakes and they've all been pretty close to the same thing. So, I thought "let's try horizontal stripes!" As you can see, as far as the number of stripes, they are much fewer than normal but they took me twice as long! Horizontal is hard but it's a fun and different look. I really had a great time putting this one together!
