Sweet Valentine Cupcake

Can you believe it’s already time to start thinking about Valentines Day? I’ll be sharing a Valentine’s inspiration shoot with you later this month but for now I put together this little cupcake presentation you can try for you and your sweetie (or a “single ladies” night maybe!).
This is simple to do with your martini glasses, rock salt or sugar for a base that the cupcake sits on, and a simple strip of paper with a word printed from your computer. To dress up the cupcake I wrapped a strip of coordinating scrapbook paper around the liner, and I even found another use for the incredible edible Bedazzle My Bonbons – just sit it on top of the cupcake! The little strip of paper is simply rolled like a scroll at both ends and hangs off the rim of the glass. And of course, you must add a little bling!

I continued to have fun with the presentation and wrapped the scroll around the stem of the glass for a different look.  What other ideas can you come up with?

For more inspiration, follow me on Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook. Cheers!

    And the doily really adds to the whole presentation.

    About the scrolled tag…you might also attach it to one end of a swizzle stick or mini skewer to look like a little pennant standing in the glass (with the tag's end still prettily curled, as you've shown)!

    Super cute scrolled tag. I have to do this for our Valentine's dinner. So sweet! I have some freebie cupcake wrappers on my blog. You should stop by and get them! I'm pretty sure you could do something fun with them!
