I always think that one of the best ways to show you love someone is through food. Ever since I was a child, I've equated cake with caring and have no problem admitting that I'm a bit of an emotional eater.

Food makes me happy and I look forward to every meal.

Different holidays always require special foods and Valentine's Day is no exception -- it's the perfect time to show your loved ones, through some gorgeous food, that you care.

Desserts are the perfect opportunity to pull out all the stops. Chocolate, fresh berries and cream -- celebrate through sugar!

The chocolate cake is ideal for a meal with friends; after all, Valentine's Day is for everyone and not just couples.

It's a very easy cake to make, so it gives you the time to make an amazing dinner to eat before it.

The meringue swans, while incredibly romantic, need a delicate approach. Put aside some time to carefully put them together at the last minute and the results are truly beautiful and well worth the effort.

The ginger and white-chocolate creams, on the other hand, are extremely easy to make.

They go very well with any homemade or shop-bought biscuits to make a truly special end to a romantic meal.
