Far: Valentine's Day round up! gifts, treats and dinner venues

Hello! Valentine's day is just around the corner! Malaysian's usually don't celebrate valentine's day in a big way and most of us don't celebrate at all. But it's always nice to do something sweet for you loved ones and friends and valentine's day is just a good excuse to do so! I've compiled some of our previous posts and some extra new ones to inspire all of you this valentine's day:)

Sweet Treats!

Why not bake a batch of cupcakes in the appropriate theme colours of pink and red? Your hubby, boyfriend, girlfriends and family wont say no to that! Below are some of Aiysha's pretty creations! Links to similar recipes can be found below.

Vanilla Bean cupcakes with Pink icing- a classic favourite

or get fancy for a friend and make her a cupcake bouquet! This is also great for mother's day and teacher's day too! use any of your tried and tested recipes for this cute idea. Check out Aiysha's step by step instructions here!

Not everyone appreciates a sweet treat (the horror!) but these cute and tasty lasagna cups may just be everyone's favourite! See how ad made them with step by step instructions and pictures, yeay!
