A rose for the lady?

9 Feb

Well, how about it? Valentine’s Day seems merely seconds away and most aren’t prepared. Not because they haven’t gathered their presents, but mostly because they feel they haven’t gathered enough. Valentine’s Day seems to be the most popular time of year to not just be in love, but to show it in as many ways as possible. So why not show it with flowers? So I’ll ask again, “A rose for the lady?”

Hmmm, maybe even a rose for the gentleman? (Men like roses , too — especially the edible kind)

Anyone can give roses for Valentine’s Day; It’s practically a standard at this point. But edible cupcake roses…now that would definitely stand out from the crowd of other in-office deliveries and front-door surprises. After all, this is the time to be special, right?

Then again, not everyone is into roses, or even flowers, for that matter. Though these pretty “plants” would make a rather fitting presentation, there are other options for the non-flower-lovers in your life…

If presentation is everything, imagine what a warm welcome these beauties would get!

Heart-shaped cake pops? Sure, what a great idea! Red Velvet cake grazed with a warm layer of cream cheese frosting and blanketed by a loving array of red, pink, and white confetti make these treats simply irresistible. Aren’t you falling in love just looking into their Valentine-inspired nonpareil eyes?  (it’s easy to be captivated by confections, particularly confections as cute as these 🙂 )

Like roses, they can still be held, devoured, and, most importantly, shown off to all who are willing to give them a look. And with such a pretty face, who wouldn’t want to look? My thoughts exactly.

Regardless of what you choose to give that special someone for Valentine’s Day, make sure it shows just how you feel in more than just material possessions… although material possessions, specifically those aforementioned, would be an excellent addition to the words and actions of the day. *hint hint*

Until next time, have a delicious day!

Love is in the air!

24 Jan

Valentine’s Day isn’t for another 3 weeks but it’s presence is quite extensive. There are pink & white candies on display, heart shaped containers floating about, even red food coloring is on sale–all of which I am taking full advantage of!

Even if you view Valentine’s Day as a dreaded day of the year, it does have it’s highlights. For instance, think of all the deliciousness I get to bake! Like these…

Sugar cookies adorned with a trim of Valentine’s edition M&M candies. Better yet, something sweet for your sweetie. Corny? Indeed. Appropriate? Of, course.

You could easily give a Valentine’s Day gift (such as these) to that special someone, or just give them to yourself (you’re special, too) as a token of your affections. Either way, you’ve got my vote  🙂

They’re fabulously soft and sweetly traced in the colors of love. Just imagine how adorable these would be next to a bouquet of flowers and a hand-written card. Ahhh, I’m falling in love already…with the cookies, that is  🙂

All in all, I hope your Valentine’s Day is as fantastically sweet as mine will be. I’ve got lots of ideas for more ‘heart’felt projects to make the days leading up to it as warmhearted and cuddly as the holiday itself.

Until next time, have a delicious day!
