Foodie Friday: 20 Valentine’s Day Desserts (Recipes Included)

I haven’t posted a Foodie Friday since “Breakfast Sweets” on New Year’s Day. Valentine’s Day is another perfect occasion (manufactured excuse) to indulge. Baking pink cupcakes for your princess, Champagne popsicles for your besties, rose macarons for your mom, or heart-shaped Hostess-style cupcakes for your guy. All the sugary beauties here click through to recipes. If you try one, let me know how it goes. And if you have extra, feel free to share. I love dessert.

Before you go, I was thinking, inspired by Wayne Thiebaud, and the dessert artwork of Joel Penkman, which I discussed last month, it could be interesting to have images of cookies, candies, or other sweets, really large scale, in a kitchen or playroom, or crazy big (like covering an entire wall) in an eatery.  It would be fun to bake a beautiful cake, take some shots, and have a company digitally print photographs onto canvas. Double dose of DIY anyone?
