Now that my boys are both off at college our traditional Valentine’s dinner (all done in heart shaped foods) has changed into care packages. This year I made these large sugar cookies covered in Royal Icing.
The heart cookie has I love you written in a red food coloring pen.
The O has X’s and O’s written all over it in blue.
And the X has all the things I love about them written in green.
Then as I stated in my last blog I make each of my boys a special gift, this year I made a sketch of their favorite animal and put it in a mat. Then on top of the mat I placed a piece of acetate (A clear plastic sheet you can get at a photo copy store) which I decorated with a Valentine message. Later the acetate can be removed so that they can keep the sketch.
