Valentine’s Desserts 2014

I disappointed myself this year with Valentine’s Day desserts.

I had great aspirations, but then the usual happened:

My son broke his pinky, my nanny had a birthday, we had 2 Valentine’s day parties, there was a kids’ party we had to go to the prior weekend, the kids were stuck at home for 3 snow days… you know how it goes.

So, without any further excuses, here are my brownie bites:

I piped the chocolate hearts out of chocolate, and made pink buttercream frosting.

They weren’t cutesy enough for me, since I like very pink and red desserts, with sprinkles.

But no time, so I made brown sugar blondies with Valentine’s M&Ms.

At least the cupcake cups I put them in were cutesy!

And that was all I did.

But in my defense, I also had to make a birthday cake, so you know…

For our awesome nanny!

As I always say, I’ll do better next year!  🙂

  1. Nothing ever really goes as planned. I think we all learn this time and time again but then we expect something different. In the end I think we just have to be happy for what did work out and what we were able to accomplish. These sweets look amazing! You did a great job! Cheers to you under the various circumstances too.

  5. All I managed was a batch of heart-shaped rolled ginger cookies. No pink buttercream frosting, no hand-piped chocolate hearts, no additional blondies, no fondant-covered birthday cake. If you are disappointed, you are an over-achiever who could give Martha Stewart pointers about unlimited aspirations! Your work is impressive! I hope you stop and take a deep breath once in a while! 🙂

  8. Gosh, Geraldine, this certainly doesn’t look like failure to me! Your brownies are beautiful, and the M&M bars look so yummy! I tried piping chocolate for the first time this Valentine’s Day. It was fun, but I made them too thin and they all broke. It was a lesson learned so will do better next time. Your cake is beautiful, too! Your family is very blessed to have you baking all these things for them!
