Let’s go pink for Valentine’s Day, ok? As a kid, I remember making homemade Valentines with my mom. This year, we BAKED homemade Valentines together. Last weekend my mama came for a visit and we spent nearly 24 hours in our aprons baking pink desserts. 24 hours might be an exaggeration, but between burning a batch of lollipops and a few dozen cookies, and heading to the store at 10pm to pick up an oven thermometer, things took a bit longer than expected. Our first pink v-day treat? Homemade sprinkles! Pink velvet sprinkles – the flavor of red velvet with a pink hue. If you’re looking for the perfect easy-to-make homemade Valentine to give someone special, wrap up a handful of these pink dots with ribbon and a note. You’re the sprinkles on my ice cream.
One part of our wedding photographer husband/wife duo, Rachel, asked me to guest blog one of my Valentine’s day-themed recipes over on All Things Inspired, where she’s got all kinds of pretty things from fashion to family to photography. I’m tickled pink to be sharing this kid-friendly recipe for homemade sprinkles on her blog today.
