Valentine's Day


I made Valentine's cookies with a friend this year!

Valentine's Day in Japan involves the girls giving the guys chocolate, or some other present like a handmade scarf. But it's not as if the girls miss out on anything. We also have a White Day on March 14th where the guys give back to the girls.

I'm always suspicious of this system because, a) the guys don't give us chocolate on White Day, and what I want is chocolate! b) when you're a student we only have school until the beginning of March, so unless the guys are persistent, you're not at school to receive the present! and c) it just seems like a plot to make you spend more money...

BUT! I'm a sucker for holidays and end up baking something or the other every year! Hope you all had a lovely valentine's day, too!

Those cookies are so beautiful to look at. Would anyone really want to hide them from the world in their tummy?

I like the different sizes. Super cute!
