It looks rather magnificent. Marvelous. And a whole lot of other good M-words.
Thanks, PnP. The truth is that I do not have much patience nor skill with plating. I really thought a lot about food that would look pretty on its own. It is a bit like decorating: I have no talent to do it, but I know what works when I see it. You know?

@Babe - That is a pretty cupcake. I wonder how they did it to make it so perfect...

They either placed the cookie on top of the cupcake and sprinkled the powdered sugar over all of it and then lifted the cookie off or just used a cutout piece of paper

Anti-Valentines cookies. I can't help it, I do love a bit of cynicism with my cookies sometimes. Maybe that's just my sense of humor that enjoys edible backhandedness? It has given me a very wicked idea though....

Now those cake bonbons though are my kind of pink! SHOCKING pink. Would anyone happen to know if that would be food coloring gel or perhaps color powders used for chocolate making, that would create such a vibrant shade?

Either way, I would be one very happy girl if I received bonbons like that for Valentine's. Thank you, MA! I'm going to continue fawning and squeeing now...

I totally agree with PnP and love the anti-Valentine's Day cookies. It gives me a wicked idea as well.

Love the bright pink! But then...I adore pink.
