Valentine yummies

Christmas ends...then comes Valentines....let the sugar rush begin (again)!!

Have spent my evening making a 'few' (about 53) cupcake pops for a friend for a party she is having tomorrow and for her kids to hand out as their Valentine goodies. Stuck some down in the closest glass to me to snap a picture (don't worry it was clean!). Sorry I'm no food photographer, but you get the idea perhaps. I put 13 together for her quickly to hand out at dance class tomorrow morning and will finish the rest in the morning in time for the afternoon party!! Plan to throw some pinks in too, just didn't have a second double boiler.
Note to my darling hubby: I'd like about 3 more handy dandy fit any pot double boilers! hmmm, I wonder if perhaps there is a holiday approaching that might perhaps warrant a token of your affection???? My fabulous man, don't be fooled by silly girls that don't appreciate kitchen tools for such tokens...I'm a lover of good kitchen tools and find them quite romantic!!
Throw in a pretty new apron and WHOA.....

and for those of you who wonder....what's a cupcake pop? check out www.bakerella.blogspot.com you will be amazed and I can pretty much guarantee you will be inspired to try something yourself!
This particular variety are red velvet cupcake with creamcheese frosting hand molded into a heart shape placed on a stick and dipped in candy melts! pure sugar indulgence and the way to my man's heart...he loves the things so I'll have to make a few extras
for him or i'd be a dreadful Valentine!
Me, kitchen appliances. He, things produced by said kitchen appliances...
Yep, he's my perfect Valentine!!

Too cute! I love to adorable treats, I wish I had talent in the kitchen, but I am sadly lacking in that department!
