Blingscuits

It’s coming up to that dreaded time of the year, no not Friday 13th (although I won’t be walking under any ladders tomorrow) February 14th. Red roses, boxed chocolate, sickly sweet cards, restaurants putting on a special “valentines menu”…Makes me want to do that teenagery fingers in throat gesture. Unlike the past years where I’ve made something for you romantic folk out there this year I thought it was time to BIG UP all those singles. Why shouldn’t all the bachelors and bachelorettes celebrate too? So I came up with some tastelicious Blingscuits. The idea is to make a super-crazy-sweet-packed-Gangsta-stylee medallion (think Run dmc) and show off to the world (the idea is not to be subtle here) that you’re fablicious! Alternatively if you are with the classic folk and you need a valentine’s idea, you can write a sweet (or naughty one too) message on the blingscuit. The biscuits contain fresh ginger which is known to be an aphrodisiac and a whole ton of sugar which will make any sleepy head turn into a raving casanova.

“Won’t you be my valentine?” A question which will be on many people’s tongues this 14th. Not mine though. I tend to be a bit more cynical and find the whole thing way too commercial. But then I guess if you’re unluckily attached to someone who needs that kind of reminder, than once a year is better than none a year.
I may be cynical in regards to valentines but I do have a small weakness for anything in a heart shape, though. For some reason I often end up making a cake, biscuits or other foods in heart shapes. Keep reading…
