Valentine Love Heart cakes...



I use to love, love, love, love heart sweets when I was little. 

Could not eat them.

Fast enough.

Ripping the packaging off to see what the next one said.

 "keep cool"

 "in love" 

"cool dude"

 When I saw this tube of little packs in the pound shop, I could not wait to make something with them....

I did not expect them to go as fast as this though!!
