It’s almost that time again – time to order those flowers, buy those chocolates, and declare your love – because Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! I know many people don’t like the holiday, but I just love it! The decorations, the hearts, the “I Love You’s”, the Disney, the Pink and red….etc. And yes, I did just include Disney in my list of things to love about Valentine’s Day – not only because I love Disney so much, but because there are so many great Disney love stories out there – Mickey and Minnie, Donald and Daisy, Cinderella and Prince Charming, Ariel and Prince Eric, Carl and Ellie from Up – I could go on, but I won’t.

My point is – there are plenty of ways to add a little Disney Magic to your Valentine’s Day celebration. For example, you could try these DIY Valentine’s Disney Crafts:

What could be cuter than making your own Disney Valentines to hand out to all your friends?

….Of course, some people don’t need help being creative – like my husband who likes to hand-make cards for me (I would scoff and call him a show off, but I really love the cards he makes!)

I love doing crafts and making cards/décor for any and every holiday, but personally I think the way to a man’s heart (or mine for that matter!) is through their stomach – and nothing says “I Love You” like this beautiful chocolate layer cake served at Le Cellier in Epcot

Vday Cake

Chocolate Canadian Club Cake (recipe courtesy of Magical Recipes)



1 chocolate cake (your favorite recipe)

24 ounces Chocolate Mousse Batch (recipe below)

6 ounces Ganache (recipe below)

8 ounces Whiskey Syrup (recipe below)


1 pound Chocolate disks

1/2 quart Heavy cream

Chocolate Mousse

9. 4 1/2 ounces powdered sugar

1/2 quart whipping cream — whipped

7 fluid ounces egg yolk — pasteurized

12 ounces chocolate coins (or other high quality chopped chocolate)

Whiskey Syrup

3/4 quart Water

1/2 pound Sugar

6 ounces Canadian Club Whiskey



Cut your round cake into 3 layers.

Take each layer and drizzle whiskey syrup over each, covering generously.

After whiskey syrup soaks in, cover each layer with chocolate mousse, and stack all layers together.

Cover completed cake with mousse and decorate with Ganache for icing using a pastry bag with a star tip.


Heat Cream – do not scald.

Remove from heat and stir in Chocolate Coins until smooth.

Chocolate Mousse

Whip eggs and sugar until light and fluffy.

Carefully melt the chocolate over double-boiler steam bath stirring often.

When steps 1 and 2 are complete, fold the melted chocolate into the egg and sugar mixture. Then fold the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture.

Place in the cooler to chill, then portion and serve.

Whiskey Syrup

Combine Water and Sugar in a saucepan.

Bring to a boil; stir until all Sugar is dissolved.

Remove from heat, add the Whiskey.

Vday Cupcakes

Wow that makes my mouth water just reading the recipe! But if you aren’t sure you’re ready to tackle a layer cake, or if you want something your kids can help with, then might I suggest these adorable Lady and the Tramp themed Spaghetti and Meatball Cupcakes?
