Baked LOVE!





There is no surprise more magical than the surprise of being loved.  It is God's finger on man's shoulder.  
Charles Morgan

A sweet little baking project to celebrate love and have creative fun while doing so. I have found instructions for this amazing icing on a great blog all around baking and decorating called sweetopia. I'm not usually a great baker, but at the moment, i love it. Maybe because it keeps me warm and is not as demanding as painting. Still thinking about what to give my honey on valentines: some funky baked lips? Have a sweet weekend lovelies, i'd love to hear what you are up to.

And: Please excuse my slowness in blogging or lack in comments. I have problems with blogger lately. The comment boxed disappear, when i want to write something. Has any of you a similar problem?

  18. So much fun! I hope you had a good time baking all these goodies. I thought of you today as I was painting a small canvas, and then later got some paint on Maximus' hand to get his handprint. He was giggling when I was painting his hand, and practicing prior to it. I guess it felt ticklish to him. haha...

    Oh, yes...I too recently had blogger issues. I would click comment, and then the page would just hang forever and act like it was going to load but never would on certain blogs. SO FRUSTRATING! I hope it works for you soon.

    Happy Valentine's day, Martina!

  25. Thanks Martina, for visiting the madness at Rattus Scribus. I'm a cookie fiend. I love short bread cookies with Earl Grey tea.

    Hmm. Sounds good about now.
    All the best,

  27. These are adorable! I have some sugar cookies I made yesterday that need some icing...off to take a peek. Hugs to you for a Great Valentines day my friend.xoxoxox

  28. These cookies look so good right about now! Why is that? I seem to crave sweets after dinner. :)

    It was fun having a go at the handprint art...I got a pretty good one of Maximus' hand...not perfect, but it's a little challenging doing that on your own. haha...I so wish I could take some painting lessons from you! I have done some painting over the years...mostly with acrylics, but I am by no means "great." It is fun though to mix colors and see the pretty possibilities.

    Happy Valentine's Day!

  29. Hi Martina!
    I've made sugar cookies before, but never this fancy!
    I can only imagine the smiles that this tray of cookies must produce!
    They are perfect for a day like Valentine's Day!
    Happy Valentine's Day to you, Martina!
    Wishing you joy always,
    ♥ Maria

  32. Oh, Martina, I'm so glad you came around to call! Thank you, dear. I've been trying to get around to wish everyone a happy St. Valentine's day, but our little one was sent home today with a 103 temperature! He missed his little V-day party at school :( So that has been my afternoon! And YES! I was telling a few bloggers that on certain blogs I will almost finish a long comment, and suddenly the box will jump, refresh, and all my words are gone! I have to copy each line, or retype it , then paste a new comment. It only happens on some blogs, but yours is one! I have started this 4 times!!! [ and to think just 10 years ago I was complaining about ink smearing!!!!]
    Love on this special day,
    dawne

DID YOU ENJOY YOUR MEN? I wish you a pleasant day, filled with light and love, ALWAYS!!! I cannot wait for summer vacation, to do more ART!!!
