Weekend Links: National Chocolate Cake Day Celebration

Valentine's DIY Projects in Progress
While this coming Monday doesn't hold the kind of holiday that gets us a day off work, it's still something to celebrate: National Chocolate Cake Day! Oh Happy Day rounded up 5 chocolate cake recipes for your celebration. Given the recent return of the polar vortex, a Sunday spent baking sounds pretty good to me. To help, Food 52 tells us how to identify good (and not so good) cocoa powder.

One of those people who loves coffee with your afternoon cake? Again from Food52 (sometimes I swear that team is inside my head): how to make flavored coffee creamer at home. I've been trying to find a way to break my husband's toxic Coffee-mate habit, so I'm definitely going to try this.

I'm always collecting tips on impromptu entertaining. This week Style Me Pretty Living published a list of 21 things you need for entertaining on the fly. Preparation for celebration! 

Speaking of, I am SO excited to dive into Valentine's Day prep next week. In the meantime, if anyone does bake a chocolate cake this weekend, please send me photos!
