Every year our ward has an awesome valentine’s day party. Last year I did the photo-booth for it. This year they asked if I wanted to do it again, but I’ve done it several times in a row now and I’d like to actually participate and enjoy the party this time. TH and I are going to slow dance with a toddler tugging at our legs and it will be romantic.
Part of the festivities happening at this party will be a Valentine’s Day Dessert Contest, and I have decided I’d like to win. I recently picked up some silicone heart molds, and that has to be a good start, right? The rules for this contest are that your offering needs to be red or pink in some way. It also needs to be something that’s good for a group, so no individual cheesecakes (as cute as they may be).
Here’s what I dug up on Pinterest.
Maybe I could even make the beet cake in the shape of a heart?
Banana-Split Ice Cream Torte
Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Layer Cake
Whole-Wheat Chocolate Cake with Easy Whipped Cream Frosting
Cherry Blossom Strawberry Cheesecake
Red Velvet Cheesecake
And maybe I could make the cupcakes heart shaped using the marble trick?
Cranberry Bliss Bars
Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread
Russian Fruit Cake
What do you think? Which one will help me take first prize (which is probably a chocolate bar or something ).
