Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate than with Peanuts—where Sally loves Linus, Charlie Brown loves his Little Red-Haired Girl, and everyone loves Snoopy!
Last Saturday, adorable 10-year-old actress Francesca Capaldi, who stars as Charlie Brown’s beloved Little Red-Haired Girl in the upcoming The Peanuts Movie, hosted a Peanuts-themed Valentine’s Day party with Snoopy and his sister Belle at the Park Hyatt in Carlsbad, California.
“I was really excited to host this early Valentine’s party with Snoopy and his adorable sister Belle —it’s pretty much the best way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, ever!” says Capaldi. “My friends and I had a great time trying on clothes and making Valentine’s…and eating chocolate, of course!”
Francesca, who’s also one of the stars of Disney’s Dog with a Blog, and her friends enjoyed Valentine’s Day card-decorating, delicious cakes and cupcakes, and of course a showing of the classic TV special, Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown.
Chocolate Cake Recipe:
Very easy to make, basic buttercream is ideal for icing cupcakes and for piping decorations and borders. It will stay fresh at room temp for 2 days and can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
Yields 5 cups, enough to fill and cover one 9”cake or 16-18 cupcakes
