valentine's day dessert buffet

Need some inspiration for your Valentine’s Day party dessert table? Check out this latest dessert bar creation by Amy Atlas… which can only be described as absolutely pink-a-licious!

Goodies included: a macaron tower (so cute!), ruffled buttercream cake and cupcakes, pink favor boxes tied up with pretty satin ribbon, and lots of pink candy! For a nostalgic feel, Amy also included strawberry milk in “Be Mine” glasses.

The lovely bubblegum pink, light pink, & pale gray table (which was created for a segment on Better TV) featured a “Key to My Heart” theme, which was played up through the adorable key-topped cupcakes and “Love is the key to my Heart” candy bar wrappers.

All of the paperie elements were designed by Wiley Valentine, and Patti Paige of Baked Ideas created the elegant key cupcakes and heart cookies.

Rock candy sticks and meringue cookies always make for such a pretty display…

What is the pink drink? Ive been looking for a cute cocktail like that.

Shannon –
I’m not sure exactly what the pink drink in the “Be Mine” glasses is, but it looks a lot like pink lemonade – which you could easily just add vodka to for a cocktail version, or you could swap out the regular lemonade for pink lemonade in this yummy lemonade-based recipe:

Here are a few more ideas too:
(or alternative recipe here: )
(maybe use Pinky vodka with this to make it look even more like the strawberry milk: )

good luck! :)
