Celebrate Valentine’s Day with this DIY Dessert Table

Valentine’s day and sweet treats go hand in hand, so it’s only natural to want to set up a dessert bar full of sweet treats to celebrate. Today I will share how I created the perfect Valentine’s day sweets table complete with triple color swirl cupcakes and color dipped chocolate chip cookies. Hey, everyone!

To get the ultimate sweet table setup, you first need to think of a color scheme. Naturally, I went with red, turquoise, and shades of pink. Once I had the color scheme set, I started on the baked goods.

I have always wanted to try a multi-colored iced cupcake but always found it too complicated to place all those icing bags into each other. So when I found the Wilton three compartment coupler, I was excited to give it a try.

I just followed the directions on the package and created a jumbo swirl piping bag filled with light pink, hot pink, and mint blue icing. I iced cupcakes with a regular swirl and also a fun multi color spiked look.

Next up were the chocolate chip cookies. I gave this a Valentine’s Day makeover by dipping the cookies in melted Wilton candy melts in shade of pink and red. Then I topped them with sprinkles and gum paste flowers.

The rest of the table was filled out with plates of macarons, color dipped pretzels and marshmallow hearts.

For decorations, I used several shades of pink and red yarn to create large pom poms and then tied them to a long piece of yarn for a bunting to hang behind the table. I also used spray painted paper mache boxes turned into macarons to add a sweet, whimsical touch to the table. A sign declaring LOVE finished off the table and made it the perfect sweet table for your Valentine’s day party.
