Oh noooo. It’s that time of the year again when you’re supposed to get all lovey dovey and allow your significant other to spoil you to the core with chocolates and rose petals. Thankfully, I’ve never had to go through this trauma. Valentine’s is just another day for me. I’m not just saying this because I’m happily single af (boys stay away now) but I don’t find a reason to go overboard on one day. If you really love someone, you are going to make them feel special every single day of your life.
With that said, I’m not going to spoil the mood of those who LOVE celebrating this day. Go ahead and do all those nice things. I shall also help you with this killer cake of mine.
Strawberries, lemon, chocolate, marshmallows…. I found it so hard to eat. It was just too pretty for my eyes and the flavours were bang on.
Don’t get intimidated. Trust me, it’s a really simple cake that just takes a little time and patience. You can be even more creative with the presentation but I didnt want to over do it so kept it as basic as I could.
I started it off as a naked cake but then I couldn’t resist that chocolate drip staring at me. So I went ahead and threw some of it on my cake. After all, I love messy cakes and I cannot lie.
This is rich, creamy, indulgent and I can’t think of a more perfect cake to be eaten on this day. The strawberries and lemon balance out the richness of the chocolate so beautifully. Even if you don’t have a Valentine (like me) this year, you will fall in love with this. It will keep you company or even better, your surprise date is going to drool over this cake!!
