Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and even though I am not hosting a party, my sons preschool is certainly having one! Of course, as a good mommy I plan on contributing a little something. So I set out for inspiration on what to bake and found no shortage of it! Here are a few favorites:
The Dream Cake: If you happen to be in charge of a bigger Valentine’s event and have lots of time to invest, I absolutely love this wedding cake from Brides.com. Flowers, Hugs and kisses.. and of course, it’s all about love! What says Valentine’s Day more than that!?

Sweet and Simple:
If you are like me and have a smaller event in mind, I found these delicious and adorable looking cupcakes from the Confessions of a Bakeaholic
. Cupcakes are quick and easily served when you have 8 little preschoolers bouncing off the walls! And she has even listed a version of the recipe
using a cake mix to cut down on time – great for us busy moms!
If Red Velvet is your flavor, and a big elaborate cake is out of the questions, these cookies from Sand & Sisal
look both adorable and delicious! And who doesn’t love sprinkles? See the step by step instructions
and they are sure to be a big hit on the dessert table!
