At our house Valentine's Day isn't such a big deal. Yes, there are a few treats here and there (such as a bag full of M&Ms from MiMi to her favorite boy), and we do take a moment to do something special for each other: He made breakfast for me this morning, and I made a cake for him this afternoon. I suppose I should say I made a cake for them, although the mini-human in the family was much more interested in the beaters used to make the frosting, and I can't say I blame him, either. It was a laid-back Sunday, filled with naps, etsy and the advent of racing season. Was there a better way to finish it off than with a big slice of Devil's Food Cake? Only if you top that cake with Pea's Marshmallow Frosting. Which we did.
And on that simple note, Happy Valentine's Day to you all, too.
I used David Lebovitz's recipe for Devil's Food Cake and the Marshmallow Frosting recipe found at Culinary Concoctions by Peabody.
