Valentine's Day sweets made easy...because someone else made them!
Yes, you read that right! We are all for sharing how to make something from scratch however sometimes you need something quick and easy without sacrificing the pretty! So today we're sharing a few of our special products that can help you enhance store bought chocolates and turn them into something even more special!
5 Easy Valentine's Day Sweets Decorating Tips:
1. An fast way to add a little color to your chocolates is to wrap them in a foils candy wrapper. We have a variety of colors and sizes available and the light pink was perfect for Valentine's Day. See the colors and sets we carry here.
2. Want to add a colored sheen to your chocolates? Use edible luster dust to transform your chocolate into something special. We use a soft dusting brush with cotton candy pink to turn a few of our chocolates a pretty shape of pink.
3. Glitter lovers put your hands up! We have edible glitter, oh yes we do! We used a couple kinds to create a few pretty looks. Tiny gold star glitter scattered on top a chocolate hazelnut truffle made it look even more diving! Use finer champagne gold edible glitter to add a pretty sparkle!
4. Feeling a little like Jackson Pollack by using champagne gold edible art paint to create a spatter paint look to the chocolates. Champagne gold edible glitter was added to create one of my more favorite chocolate decorating techniques.
