Treats to Make Your Valentines

Posted giovedì 25 gennaio 2018   |   384 views   |   Food & Drink   |   Comments (0) Nothing says love and affection more than a homemade gift for someone you love. We've rounded up our top Valentines recipes and treats that are perfect for sharing.

Decorated Valentines Cookies

For the bow cookie you will need:

  • 50g sugar paste: red 
  • buttercream or jam
  • 50g sugar paste: white
  • edible glue
  • dragee balls: pearlised and silver
  • royal icing


1- Roll out 50g of red sugar paste thinly and cut out a heart shape. Stick this to the top of your cookie with either buttercream or jam. Roll out 50g of white sugar paste thinly and cut three strips approximately 3cm x 1cm. Position in a cross shape on left hand side of the heart, sticking them down with edible glue. Trim to fit.

2- Roll out two more strips of white sugar paste approximately 3cm x 1cm. Cut inverted ‘V’s into one end of each and stick down on either side of the centre of the cross.

Decorated Valentines Cookies step 6

3- Roll out a little more white sugar paste into a strip measuring approximately 12.5cm x 2cm. Put edible glue in the centre, then fold over one end so that it sticks. Use a small piece of rolled up kitchen roll to hold in place.

4- Adding more edible glue to centre, fold over other end of strip and stick that to centre also, once more inserting a rolled-up segment of kitchen roll as a former for it to dry around.

5- Cut one more strip of white sugar paste approximately 4cm x 1cm and fold this over the centre of the bow, giving it a squeeze on either side to narrow it slightly. Glue on a silver dragee ball to centre of the bow, and mark either side with a Dresden tool to create creases.

6- Mix up some royal icing according to instructions, and using a no. 1 writing nozzle, pipe small dots around the outside of the red heart.
