Happy Valentine’s Day to all my sweet readers! Your comments left on my recent blog posts have warmed my heart despite the super-cold temperatures here in New York. Thank you for coming by to see what I’m up to in my kitchen and in my dessert design studio. I love hearing from you all! Here are the results of my first ever shoot at Howard Rosenthal Photography‘s studio. (How lucky am I that hubby is an awesome photographer?)
My Romantic Valentine’s Dessert Table was all about the traditional flavors of chocolate, vanilla and marshmallow as well a few other favorites.
These wonderful pink, brown and white chocolate cake pops from Candy’s Cake Pops were color coded on the tips of the sticks. What a clever idea!
Mini Glazed Chocolate Doughnuts from Dough a Deer added serious cuteness and wonderful color to the table.
Chocolate Iced XO Cookies were inspired by Valentine’s cookies I saw over at Bake at 350. I’ll be blogging about her terrific recipe soon!
I love “just a bite” sized cupcakes! These are chocolate with a delicious buttercream frosting. The red sprinkles are actually shaped like sexy lips. Cupcake wrappers, toppers, dessert labels, papers here and elsewhere in this post are all from Lindi over at Love the Day. It was such a pleasure to work with her!
These are the Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Brownie Bites I blogged about recently – a sweet, collaborative effort between me and my teenage daughter. Read the post on it here.
Vanilla and Chocolate Layer Cake is so simple, old-fashioned and perfect for sweethearts!
I Heart U and Heart Shaped Peeps, M and M’s, Gumballs, Mini Hershey Bars, Candy Corn and Raspberry Cookies (at far end of table) round out the many sweets for this Valentine’s Dessert table.
Milk Shooters to wash all the yummy treats down are embellished with romantic Be Mine wrappers and paper straws with hearts.
Here’s a final look:
Whatever you do today, I hope you are surrounded by people who love and cherish you!
Have a sweet day,
