Valentines Day

The worldly renowned Valentines Day is fastly approaching, the day which we celebrate love. Valentines Day began with the Roman Empire which held the Lupercian Festival every February in honour of the God of fertility, where young men could choose their mate. During this time marriage was legal however, when Claudius became Emperor he changed the laws, fearing men would refuse their duty to fight because they would not want to leave their wives. When couples wished to get married in secret they would go to Catholic Bishop Valentine who would marry the couples. When Claudius found out he had Valentine arrested. While waiting in jail Valentine exchanged letters with his lover and on his final note before he got beheaded he signed it with: 'From Your Valentine'. This is where the traditional began.

This year we are providing a little SPICE for the lovers among you! We have spiced Valentines Cookies for those who like a little heat during the month of love, with cinnamon, chilli, salt and pepper to get the blood pumping.

We also have beautiful hand decorated, made-to-order cookies for those sweet messages and pretty things for your loved one.
