Valentine's Day Roundup

Pink. 💗  Red. 💔 White. Red & Turquoise.   Hearts. 💜💜💜 

Seen any of these lately?  Just kidding. Do you live in a cave? 

Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Again. Sorry.
Did I make your heart pound a little faster? Count it as cardio!
Right after you finish those ahem, "test" chocolates.

Here are a few sweet ideas from some past projects . . .

and just in case you missed the link to make your own roses:

Has Cupid's arrow hit any of your body parts yet? Better get to baking for your sweetest someone!

Never enough time . . .

Where does it go? It was fall. Then I recall a flash of Christmas.
Now I look up and see Valentine's everywhere.
I think I need to start for next Christmas NOW.

This is one of the many trays of treats I made over the holidays. I ended up inventing some new techniques (happy accidents) and a simple but effective method for edible pinecones of all sizes which I hope to share with you before next Christmas. 

These grapevine wreaths are made of chocolate and are adorned with rustic berries (sugar pearls) nestled on a bed of pistachio moss. I may or may not have filled them with cherries.

Hope your holidays were jolly!!!
