Dessert is one of the main players when it comes to romantic and special days like Valentine’s dinner , which is why we have chosen our best dessert recipe to show you how to end sweeten a wonderful evening .
2 1/4 cups cake flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 egg whites
1 1/4 cups milk
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 stick butter, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup strawberry jam
FOR THE FROSTING
2 sticks butter, softened
6 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 Tablespoon heavy cream
2 Tablespoon cocoa powder
1 Tablespoon strawberry jam
- To make the cupcakes, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line two cupcake pans with cupcake liners.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
- In another medium bowl, whisk together the egg whites and milk.
- In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until light and crumbly. Beat in the vanilla extract.
- Add both the flour and egg mixtures to the butter mixture, half at a time, beating until well-blended.
- Split the batter into thirds. Set aside one third of the mixture. For the second, beat in the cocoa powder. For the third, beat in the jam.
- Drop some of each of the three colored batters into the cupcake liners. Swirl with a knife to create a marbled effect, if desired.
- Bake 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
- To make the frosting, beat the butter until pale. Beat in the vanilla extract, then gradually beat in the powdered sugar and heavy cream, half at a time. Split into thirds and set aside one third of the frosting. Add cocoa powder to the second, and strawberry jam to the third. Frost cupcakes as desired.
– To make the jam easier to combine with the batter and frosting, warm it in the microwave in a small bowl for 10-15 seconds.
– Because the jam can make the pink cake batter a little more runny than the other two batters, you can always add a little extra flour to compensate for the extra liquid added. Along the same lines, you can add a little extra powdered sugar to the pink frosting as well.

TIPS FOR A PERFECT VALENTINE’S DAY DINNER 2016:
The decor is basic : candles, music and flowers with some surprise for your partner .
Regarding the dinner which you will prepare just try to make sure that the food you choose your partner is not allergic to something, what dishes are the ones that your partner likes the most with what makes a good digestion or if there are any foods that sometimes problems for your Partner.
In terms of decor , just be careful with the scented candles , as these are the only cause that we can not fully appreciate the taste of food. Just place the simple candles above a table so that the food is the star .
It is best to prepare a simple table on which the food and your partner are certainly the main thing.
Another tip , beware of using food that can be replicated such as garlic to flavor are great but remove them before making the presentation of the dish and if you go for cocktails at the end of the dinner , be careful while drinking alcohol because more drunk can ruin a perfect night .
