Valentines wouldn't be Valentines without sweets. When I think about Valentines, I think of Chocolate, decorated sugar cookies and little envelopes filled with candy.
Growing up in a family of six, I always felt loved. I was a part of my family. But sometimes my mom did things to show us she loved us individually. One way she did that was by making us each a giant heart shaped sugar cookie with our name on it for Valentines. I loved those cookies.
I thought it would be fun to share a few ideas and recipes for sweets you could make for those you love this Valentines day. I'll share something new everyday this week.
My sister had a valentine making party this weekend and I made some cake balls for the occasion. Cake pops are all the rage but I like cake balls for Valentines.
They look especially good wrapped in mini cupcake wrappers.
I actually like these better than chocolates.
And they are a whole lot easier to make than chocolates.
I used Bakerella's recipe and instructions to make my cake balls HERE. I used devil's food-cake and about 2 pounds white chocolate candy coating. I colored the extra coating and piped the designs with a zip-lock baggie. *make sure you use an oil based candy coloring, not regular food coloring.
