Valentine’s Dessert Decorations, Edible Love Notes for the ones you Love!
This is a lovely holiday, Valentine’s Day. A day to share your love, with notes, and some sweet love bites. A little wiki history
The day was first associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as “valentines”). In Europe, Saint Valentine’s Keys are given to lovers “as a romantic symbol and an invitation to unlock the giver’s heart”, as well as to children, in order to ward off Saint Valentine’s Malady. Valentine’s Day symbols that are used today include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid.
Keys, hearts, doves, Cupid…images and sentiments of courtly love with sweet confections makes this a popular holiday around the world. How sweet you’ll be if you adorn your Valentine’s Day treats with edible images expressing your affections. How about modernized expressions?
