Happy Day Before Valentine’s Day, everyone! Shake and I are not really Valentine’s Day people, but I do have a soft spot for the girly things in life, like hearts and flowers and pink.

These sundried tomato brown sugar-coated hearts were the garnish for my Love Apple Cupcakes—that one time when I had my act together enough to do a Valentine sweets post in time for the day.

Be sweet, kids!
