This Valentine's Day I decided a few things-
1. I was not going to babysit like I've done so many years before
2. I was content with sitting home and relaxing
3. I wanted to bake goodies and
4. I wanted to people who were babysitting to feel loved and appreciated.
On February 14th 2010, I accomplished all of the above.
Fresh Life Radio was putting on a Valentine's Soiree, so I decided I would surprise the volunteers with a yummy dessert buffet. It was super fun to bake and create this fun dessert table! I stuck with simple desserts, so i could make more and not stress :) here's how it turned out...
(this is one of my classrooms at church, the orange room. Complete with play kitchen, green canopy, toys and a heater cover)...
A white table cloth and 1 yard of fun Valentine's fabric was the base.
I have this great old window without the glass that I put fabric behind and then just hung the Valentine's day sign over it. It really looked cute!
I used waffle bowls that are usually used for ice cream to hold the puppy chow/muddy buddies/ whatever you want to call it.
I dipped the rim of the bowls in pink melting chocolate and then added some sprinkles. I think this was my favorite little touch.
Mini dark chocolate cupcakes with triple chocolate chip frosting.
With the left over cupcake batter I made heart shaped cakes, heated up some frosting and just poured it on top.
