I’m not a cook by any means, I have like 8 recipes that I have down pat that my poor family rotates through for dinner and I fail at most new recipes I try… BUT I do like baking, and I like to think I am pretty good at it! I usually attempt the kids birthday cakes and I very proudly made my sisters engagement party cake (it will forever go down as one of my greatest achievements in life haha!) I am known for my cupcakes and banoffee pie at family gatherings, and a holiday rarely goes by without my famous sugar cookies making an appearance. So I thought in honor of today, Sweetheart Day, I would share my super simple, go-to recipe with you so you can have a little baking fun with your little loves!
If you haven’t heard of Sweetheart Day, it is held every February 14th here in Australia to raise funds for Heart Kids – supporting life-changing research and vital support for the thousands of children battling heart disease. Every day 8 babies are born with a heart defect (#8toomany), and every week 4 kids lose their fight against CHD. CHD is the biggest killer of babies under ONE – isn’t that just the craziest thing you have ever heard?? Heart Kids’ research can help stop this, and having spent time in Westmead with Oliver and getting to know families going through their own journey with CHD, this cause is close to our hearts. We want to help out in anyway we can, so I ask that if you happen to save this recipe or give it a go, please donate a little something to Heart Kids. If you do, leave a little comment below so I can thank you for your generosity – you are AMAZING!
So, here goes!
