Valentine’s Day 2016

This year my sister and her boyfriend came to visit me and my husband for Valentine’s weekend. So naturally, this called for SWEETS! Lots of them… ;-)

My sister happens to be a very talented photographer, so my idea was to put together a little sweets table for us to “photo shoot”. I knew it would be fun and I am always excited when she can teach me new camera tricks (I’m currently in the learning process). The best part of this photo shoot is that after we were done, we got to eat the sweets! The guys were most interested in that part ;)

I made a bunch of little conversation heart cookies…

Berry swirl cupcakes topped with vanilla bean buttercream and sparkly sprinkles & sugar pearls…

A bunch of little bags of “love” cookies (I sent these ones home with her in a Valentine’s “goodie bag”) :-)

And my favorite part…(this was a surprise addition!)…A Valentine’s Day MINION cake!! Of course.

Bringing him up and putting him right in the middle of the display just completed the whole table :-)

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine’s weekend. We surely did! :-) I always look forward to any opportunity to love on my family with sweets.

Happy Valentine’s Day! xoxo, Kyrsten
