On Valentine's Day, there's nothing like staying in and having a romantic dinner at home with your sweetheart. What V-Day dinner is complete without a super fancy, delicious dessert?

Grover Floral Open House

I sold boxes of holiday mini cupcakes at an open house last weekend.
The holiday flavors are:
Pumpkin with chocolate ganache and cream cheese frosting
Chocolate with chocolate ganache and raspberry frosting (love these holly sprinkles I found)
Chocolate with chocolate ganache and peppermint frosting
Egg nog with crushed rum candy
I just can't decide which flavor was my favorite.
I put them in these nice red boxes. I think they look cute and festive. I'm going to do something similar for Valentine's Day, but with romantic flavors instead. These fancy minis are a fun alternative to the typical box of chocolates.

Luncheon Cupcake Centerpiece

Perhaps it's just because I'm frugal, but I think the idea of using a cupcake stand full of beautiful cupcakes for a centerpiece is brilliant! Your dessert doubles as the centerpiece, saving you money. Here is a picture from a wedding luncheon I recently did the cupcakes for.

Cupcakes can be costomized to fit your colors and/or your theme. Contact me for more information on using cupcake stands for your next event.

Rainbow Stripe Cupcake

Rainbow striped cake (customizable colors--seen here in pink, orange, yellow, green, and blue. Pick different colors for school teams, wedding colors, birthdays, holidays, etc)
