Garnish Your Dessert to Make it Festive
Whether baking or picking up a dessert from your local baker, pick up some tips below on how to garnish your dessert for Valentine’s Day.
Mini Chocolate Cakes
A simple raspberry garnish adorns these mini chocolate cakes from Self Magazine. Wash your raspberries in advance and let completely dry on a paper towel before adding them to the chocolate frosting.
Floral Garnish for Cheesecake
This strawberry cheesecake from Diet Ihub was simply garnished by slicing strawberries and placing them in the shape of a flower, cut side up. They also placed a white chocolate rose in the center. So pretty! This is an easy garnish for a store bought cheesecake too!
A Twist on Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Who knew you could make hearts out of strawberries? This is so clever and easy to do.
Heart Shaped Cake
One square and one round cake pan is all you need to create a heart shaped cake as shown on A Little Crafty in Your Day. You then have a clean canvas to let your artistic side shine for decorating the cake.
Chocolate Valentine Bark
I love the artistic look with the combination of dark chocolate and white chocolate with a sprinkling of valentine candy for color on this bark from At the Picket Fence. Easy to make and a great party favor at your dinner party. Put the broken bark in clear bags and tie with a pretty ribbon. Add a gift tag and you have a place card for each guest at the dining room table and a gift for them to take home.
Cream and Berry Parfaits
The sliced strawberry garnish is adorable in these strawberry parfaits found on The Kitchen of Oz. The sliced strawberry will easily stick to the glass as you layer the other ingredients. You can put your other ingredients in large plastic bags and pipe the layers into the parfaits.
When removing the stem of the strawberry, make a v-cut so that when you slice the strawberries, you will have a heart shape garnish for Valentine’s Day. So pretty with the fresh mint leaves as additional garnish. This was found on Kell Bakes.
Take Your Dessert to the Next Level
No time to bake? Stop at your local bakery and pick up something special that you can put in your own serveware or dishes. Take it out of the plastic or cardboard container and placing it on a decorative cake stand or serveware makes all the difference in the presentation.
