Besides the obvious 3 reasons I LOVE Valentine's Day: everything is pink, frilly and covered in chocolate... I have 3 other reasons to be extra excited about the season of LOVE this year... and I hope they get you a little more excited too!

Reason number one:
I have a reeeeeaaallllly fun giveaway for you guys next week, specially for Valentine's Day! The best part is, not only will someone win this special prize pack bundle giveaway... there are going to be TWO winners this time! Now, you will have to wait until Sunday to find out what it is but I will give you 3 hints:
  1. It might just become the most useful pink appliance you have in your kitchen... yes, it is pink (also the #1 reason why I love it so much and know you will too!)
  2. It is really helpful for making cakes, cookies, cheesecakes and other desserts.
  3. It fits in that little white case pictured below and as an added bonus it is going to come with all of these cupcake decorating products:
Can't wait to share this with everyone, so be sure to come back all next week to enter the giveaway for a chance to win! Any guesses on what the mystery product is?!

Reason number two:
Disney Family Fun Magazine contacted me to have my Candy Cupid's Arrows featured in this months Valentine's Day issue and on their website (yup... that's my name in the fine print at the top, just under the title) ;)  This part may be a little more exciting for me, buuuut aside from all the other treats I made last year, I have a TON of new Valentine's Day inspired treats and recipe to make you a little more excited! I'm talking red velvet cake+cheesecake+frosting+homemade mini heart shaped pan=?... or how about some strawberries+3 kinds of chocolate mousse+mini flourless chocolate cakes+ganache=?... any more guesses on the incredible all-new small batch mini dessert recipes I have in store for you?!

Reason number three:
To celebrate Valentine's Day I am hosting a virtual Valentine's party, and you're invited! My virtual party is where bloggers from all over share what they are "bringing" to the virtual party on their own blogs over the next few weeks. On the day of the party I will showcase participants' posts with a link so readers all around the web can feast their eyes on a wonderful gallery of Valentine's Day inspired foods, crafts, decoration ideas, printables and more. I am "opening the Dollhouse doors" here at the Dollhouse Bake Shoppe blog to anyone and everyone from the food and craft blogging community to join me and "bring" your favorite Valentine's Day recipes, tutorials, "how-to's" and ideas. It is a great way to bring the blogging community together and well as introduce readers to a bunch of fun new blogs they haven't discovered yet! Whether you have a small, large, new, or old blog, or write for a well known website, everyone is welcome to join in on the fun. And for the readers, get ready to check out a bunch of fantastic Valentine's Day inspirations from all across the web, all in one place.

  I am so excited and can't wait to see what everyone else has to share so please help me spread the word to make this virtual Valentine's party a real hit! We already have such a great group of some fantastic bloggers joining in so be sure not to miss out!

Well, there you have it! Hope everyone is ready for a super sweet month of giveaways, recipes, and Valentine's Day inspiration.

Hope you're just as excited as I am!
