Happy Valentine’s Day ya’ll!

This year’s valentine’s was rather different. In more ways than one of course. The days leading up to it saw me spending most of my time in the kitchen by the oven.

I’m sure you all know why?

Yep, that’s because of “Cookies for a Valentine”, my first baking project! I sold my cookies via this humble foodblog of mine. It’s actually just to ‘test waters’, seeing if anyone would bite (pun intended!) and guess what? It was a major success!

I was so tired after that of course, but hey, nothing beats a satisfied customer telling you he/she loves your creations! I have gotten very positive responses from them. Maybe I’ll even post up their comments? haha..

Thank you ALL for your support. I certainly hope each of you enjoyed my cookies.

Just for fun, here’s a lowdown on how much i baked:

7 boxes of Cranberry Shortbread Hearts
7 bottles of Snowball Cookies
5 bottles of Chocolate Chunk Cookies
1 bottle of Citrus Cornmeal Shortbread

It was indeed a flour-y affair! Been baking every night for the past week. Now that it’s all over, time to hit the books! I don’t figure I’d get As just baking all night long eh? Haha.

Anyway in case some of you guys were wondering, I decided to get nice round flat boxes for the cranberry hearts because the they didn’t fit well in the bottles. But the quantity’s the same nonetheless

hearty delights

Anyway, I’m in the midst of working out my whole online bakery thing. I have decided on a name already, but until it’s confirmed, you guys have to keep guessing! Or better still, if you think you have a cool name for it, email or leave a comment ya?

snowballs
snowball cookies.. there’s so many of them!

I’m actually thinking of continuing these baking projects but more so during the holidays so my studies won’t be affected.

In any case, I will keep you guys in the loop all right?

Happy Valentine’s Day once again!

Hey Cheryl! How cool! =) I’m glad that it was a success for you, and I can totally empathize with you about the washing up part. I can’t wait to get a place of my own with a wonderful dishwasher =)
