With Valentine’s Day just a few weeks away, I thought I’d share this pretty (and pink!) dessert spread I made with our Garden Roses paper and store bought pastries. While I love to bake and have a number of tried and true recipes that rarely fail, time is not always on my side. This is a pretty presentation of sweets that takes a little effort but doesn’t require a sink full of dishes.
I used our Garden Roses paper to line simple white plates, make a table runner and fashion a few cupcake liners using our template and instructions found here. Buying the spray roses a few days ahead will allow them to become full and lush for presentation, just be sure to wash and dry them throughly the night before topping the cupcakes with them. This collection of white cake plates is one I have been working on for years, but you could achieve a similar effect by placing dinner plates on paper wrapped vases like I did here one Holiday.
