Happy Valentine's Day!

Monday, February 14, 2011

I decided to do a few things this year for valentines day. First I saw at kroger these really cute candy bouquets. They wanted $20-$35 for them. I poked at them and saw they were super easy to make. So I made a big one and a little one for Charlie and Savi!

I had vases already. Fill them up with whatever candy you want.

Glue candy to dowel rods or skewers. I had skewer already also!

Use either cellophone or tissue paper and poke thru wherever you want. Total cost was probably $5 each. (I bought my candy early and on sale...so maybe add a dollar or two if it was full price)

Savi loved it and immediately picked a "candy flower" to eat!:)

My sis gave me the idea of making little red velvet heart cakes. You just buy cake mix and spread thinly on a cookie sheet. Bake 10 min ( I baked longer bc my sis didn't answer the phone when I was baking and wasn't sure what to do. She called back to late after I baked for 20 min! Luckily they were still ok) Cut out shape of choice. Then I used cream cheese icing. I colored it pink and made little cakes for work. Yummy!

Happy Valentine's Day!
