A week early Valentine's Day party just for us? Okay. Why not? My "get a jump on baking plans" fizzled when we decided to take all of our newly baked treats and create a fun Valentine's Day dessert display in her room. Now she'd like to keep a revolving dessert display set up in her room...go figure.sugar cookies decorated with royal icing, eat your heart out chewy chocolate cookies, vanilla buttercream cupcakes, raspberry and blackberry fresh fruit skewers, Godiva chocolate hearts filled with Nutella, red felt heart garland, looped red ribbon wall hanging and white ribbon charger, ribbon trimmed fabric wall hanging and red tissue paper pom-pom.
I visually planned our display while my eyes were closed to fall asleep. The baking was complete by Wednesday night. Our Friday night was spent on projects. Everything turned out exactly how I had imagined.sugar cookies decorated with red, black and white royal icing ultimately established our color scheme.
White serving platters to display the treats.
