These are so easy to make and make such nice gifts. It's just sugar wet with a bit of water, until it gets like wet sand. Then it's pressed onto candy molds and let to dry. I've used a silicone heart mold, but they work fine with hard molds as well. And you can also color the sugar to match holidays, your china or even your clothes.
Speaking of sweethearts, Emiline tagged me for a Music Meme.
"List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your summer (or whatever season). Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they’re listening to."
Adding to this, another sweetheart, Teanna gave me the Yum-yum award! I have received that award before, but it's nice to have it again so I can spread the love to five others one more time. Thanks Teanna!

If you're bored and like music consider yourself tagged for this music meme.
And it's a good thing I'm leaving you all this music, I won't be arround for a few days, so you'll have something to entertain yourself.
I'm off to Barcelona for a short vacation, I hope to go to all the trendy patisseries and chocolate shops they have there. I'll tell you about it when I came back! Have a nice week!
