I created a fun little Sophia the First inspired party to celebrate Valentine’s Day. We had some delicious desserts. I made triple chocolate brownies and served them with cream cheese frosting in small 8 ounce mason jars, with mini chocolate chips of course!
I also dressed up some cute little paper straws by making foam tiaras and hearts. I completely missed taking a picture of the vintage style milk bottles that I adorned with lace, you can see a peek of them here.
We also made chocolate covered marshmallows, I used Ghirardelli melting chocolate and oh, these were to die for! I had to restock them a few times.
The real dessert attraction were definitely the cookies. I made these cute little tiaras, in the official princess colors of pink and purple.
These tiara cookie cutters were surprisingly easy to use, I’m normally not a fan of making cookies with thinner more detailed sections, but these turned out great!
…and of course a princess can’t be a princess without her heels. (I’m so thankful that I am not a princess..) These high heel cookie cutters remind me of Cinderella’s glass slippers!
I served them on a pretty white cake stand on a bed of pink and white sprinkles to make it look a little bit more festive.
Then we had princess wands, because wands are even more important than shoes, you know? These were pretty easy to make. I just cut out cookies like normal then set a paper straw in the middle and back of the cookie, then I used a pinch of extra dough to secure before I baked them. Then I decorated them and added ribbon.
This cookie, it didn’t last to the ribbon step. I have the cutest ever cookie thief on my hands.
