Idea 1: A sweet arrangement of rose cupcakes

Give your sweetheart the best kind of roses: edible ones! Top your cupcakes with these rolled rose decorations that are so easy to make: Roll pre-tinted red and pink fondant flat, cut uneven strips, then start at one end and roll into roses. Place several on top of each cupcake and arrange on a platter with red doilies underneath for a beautiful cupcake bouquet. Love is in bloom!

Idea 2: Woo them with cookie pops

Make their hearts skip a beat with heart-shaped cookie pops! To make these creative confections, you'll need Valentine sprinkles, red and pink icing tint, decorating bags, piping tips and cookie sticks. Try piping icing on some and dipping others in sprinkles – the possibilities are endless. Experiment with different techniques and ideas for a delicious sampling of unique cookies – a different one for each of your Valentines!

Idea 3: Try this très magnifique treat!

After a romantic dinner for two, surprise your sweetie with a dessert from the heart. To make, you'll need heart-shaped cookie cutters and a linzer cookie cutter with a heart attachment. Cut out a heart "window" on half of the cookies and bake. After they cool, sandwich strawberry jam in between and sprinkle some powdered sugar on the tops. For a beautiful presentation, layer pink beverage napkins on a tray and place your cookies on top – ooh la la!

Idea 4: Love at first bite!

Make his heart go pitter-patter with patterned 3D cookies! To make these layered cookies you'll need cookie icing, piping bags, decorating tips and royal icing. For a sweet presentation, pair your treats with coordinating plates and napkins. The stripes on this double-decker cookie really stand out when paired with red polka-dot beverage napkins. Stripes and polka-dots – a pattern match made in heaven!

Idea 5: Make a cake pops valentine

Create cute desserts with Candy Melts®, sprinkles and cake pop sticks. Kids can help decorate the treats for Dad with the included sprinkles.

Idea 7: Kid-sized candy cups

Spice up your child's Valentine's Day party with fun candy containers. Fill polka-dot party cups with Valentine favorites like Sixlets® and conversation hearts. The party cups hold just a handful of candy – the perfect amount to keep kids content without having them bouncing off the walls! Kids will love the sweet treats these party cups contain, and you'll love the way the contrasting polka-dots look on a table full of pinks and reds.
