Tips & Ideas

For valentines day I wanted to do something special for my fiance but our cash flow was more like a dribble. And it’s true what they say, the way to a man’s heart is through food, but I wanted to do something different.

The traditional candle light dinner, and heart shaped chocolate cake are good, but I have been there and done that.  Besides my man is more of a cookie kinda guy…so I took the traditional bouquet of flowers idea and mixed it with his love for cookies and ended up with a cookie bouquet.

I bought a cute little flower pot at the dollar store, some shish ka bob sticks and flower shaped cookie cutters. I  made the flower shaped cookies, baked them with the sticks in them, decorated them and then stuck them in some foam in the bottom of the pot. It was adorable and got an “A” for being edible!
