    Love your posting on Tastespotting of the little cupcake – sweet & pretty! I know what you mean about Valentine’s Day and to think it is next week. I have not done anything as well.

    Like you I am a professional PASTRY CHEF (I was educated at Peter Kump’s School in Brooklyn, NY).

    Because I am a PASTRY CHEF I simply adore your cupcakes of love. I am going to make them for “Big Bear” (his picture is on my website) because Valentine’s Day and our anniversary are so close, Big Bear and I celebrate our VALIVERSARY!

    Our anniversary is celebrated on the day that he first let me . . . well, you know (that’s why he drooled on his shirt in the photograph).

    HEY! Thanks for the idea. I know “Big Bear” will be drooling again soon.

    Every time I come back to your site the desserts, photos and simply the breadth of information, keep getting better and better. You rock!

    PS – Flemmings Choc Trio kills!

    Hi all,
    Thanks so much for enjoying the choco-overload!

    Cream means heavy whipping cream (or double cream, depending on your part of the world).
