Show Off Your Sweet Side This Valentine's Day

02/06/2017 00:32, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features Food, Family Features



Treat family, friends and co-workers to something they will all love this Valentine’s Day by making easy and impressive cookies. Start with your favorite roll-out cookie recipe or simply dress up store-bought ones by adding some simple details with icing. 

From the cupids at Wilton, here are three ways to leave them smitten with sweets this Valentine’s Day: 

  • Desserts with dimension. Triple your treats by stacking three decorated cookies in different sizes together and attach them with icing. 
  • Complement with color. A simple piping technique looks stunning when piped in different colors on your cookies.
  • Get to gifting. Wrap your finished treats in a Valentine’s Day treat bag or box.
