February 14th is Valentine’s Day. It is a day to celebrate the people we choose to share our life. In other words, it is a day to celebrate our family, friends and lifelong lovers. In my relationship with my boyfriend I focus on good communication skills between us. I think that verbalising our love everyday is a good practise, but special days like Valentines, it’s also good to show your love with a memorable gift. I strongly believe that an easy and effective way to show your loved ones your sentiments is to bake them something delicious.

These Valentines red velvet mini cakes are perfect for such an occasion. If, you have a busy lifestyle, like me, this recipe takes only about 50 minutes to prepare and bake so time-wise it suits us as well.
