Hello dear readers! How are you?
Did you celebrate St Valentine’s Day? In England, usually gentlemen give their partners flowers and chocolates, and sometimes couples will go out to dinner or a special date. In Japan, women give men chocolate, or sometimes people just give chocolate to their friends and co-workers. Making handmade chocolates is quite popular.
I made these simple chocolate cornflake cakes and decorated them with manly bears and blue hearts. Grr! You need 100g chocolate and about 80g cornflakes. Melt the chocolate, stir in the cornflakes until they are completely chocolate covered and then spoon them into cake cases. When they have cooled down a bit you can sprinke on some decorations (or leave them elegantly bare, as you wish). After that leave them in the fridge for a while to set completely. Easy!
I also went to a tea party with lolita friends. We went to the Stawberry Dessert Buffet at the Hilton. There were all sorts of strawberry things- strawberry milk with tapioca beads, strawberry madelines, strawberry macarons, matcha strawberry cake etc etc…
I liked the tapioca best, I think I had three or four of them. I wanted to get my money’s worth so I paced myself, alternating between sweets and savories in order to fit in as much as possible! I think I did pretty well.
Some people wore strawberry themed outfits which was very cute! I was going to but then my friend gave me this amazing Juliette et Justine dress which I just had to wear right away!
The material is gorgeous, plus I love the length and neckline. Thank you ♥︎ And on this particular day I’m glad it wasn’t too tight on the tummy!
Thanks for reading and see you again soon,
