Last Valentine's day my hubby had surprised me with a very beautiful gift, but this time i will surprise him by baking his favorite muffins and buying him a gift, which actually i have still not decided, will finish deciding it by tonight for gift. I wanted to bake something with strawberry for valentines day and chocolate for my birthday which is on 17th feb. Thinking that i went to buy strawberry in the morning and bought only 1pack and they were so beautiful and tempting i couldn't not control myself and i finished it all except 2 strawberry, which i have decorated my chocolate muffins... This is the best gift i can give to my hubby and i'm very excited to see his reaction.. Happy Valentine's Day to all my friends :)
