Day 7 - Red Velvet cake in a jar

Alright, day 7 of 7 days of Valentine treats. Finally!!
I have easily gained a pound and I feel like shit. Need to get back on the wagon!

So I made red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.
The red velvet recipe is this and well, F the frosting cause I used pre-made. Big time regret. That shit is soooo sweet. Oh well. At least they look super duper cute!

The poem I plan to put in the card.
Finally, it’s Valentine’s day!

All these calories need to go away.

I’m completely over baking, taking a break,

It’s been 6 days now for goodness sakes!

All six treats were totally made by me,

I have pictures to prove it, you’ll all see!

Today’s treat turned out okay,

A little too sweet for me if I must say.

I made two batches and liked only one,

But I wasn’t going to give up and miss all the fun.

Ok, no more cheesy poems, let’s cut to the chase.

To these sweets you have to put a face.

There are a few bakers at work, but who could it be?

Looks like we’ll just have to wait and see!

Fail at batch 1 (the brown)


8:00 a.m: Few pieces of Melba toast with almond butter

12:30 p.m: Falafel sandwich

Few cake pops in the afternoon :P

Day Four - Funfetti Cookie Dough Balls

Day four of 7 days of Valentine treats!

Today was fun. The biscotti was a hit at the office. Although fingers are really pointing towards me. Well, like I said, mishkebob and I. I'm ok with that. Few more days left.

I first attempted to make these, but they failed. Instead, they turned out exactly like the chocolate chip cookie dough dip I made the other day. Which of course put me in panic mode, but also excited because I love that dip. I had some with melba toast.

So backup 'thank God I had all the ingredients' treat, Funfetti cookie dough balls. Similar to the cookies from the other day. Gotta step it up!


8:00 a.m: Some yogurt

9:30 a.m: Smoothie. Healthy, don't worry.

Day Two - Sugar Cookies

Today's surprise treats to the person at work went well, I think. She shared the treats with everyone. Her all staff e-mail said she already thinks she might know who it is. I think she thinks it's mishkebob. Muahaha!

Anyway, I made these. I added chocolate over top though. They're a bit bland on their own but it'll pass. I'll edit this with my 'poem' tomorrow. I forgot it at work.
