The day of love is finally upon us, so give Cupid the sweet welcome he deserves and throw a Valentine’s Day cookie decorating party! Cheryl’s Valentine’s Day Cutout Cookie Kit comes complete with everything you need for your big V-Day bash; plus, everything is delivered to your door, so there’s no need to trudge to the supermarket for your ingredients.
Each kit contains 24 prebaked heart-shaped cookies, two tubs of Cheryl’s world-famous frosting (in vanilla and fudge flavors), and one container with six assorted Valentine’s Day–themed sprinkles. All you have to do is set the table, gather some friends and family, and get down to business! Here are our tips for throwing a charming Valentine’s Day cookie decorating party with your handy kit.
When it comes to decorating cookies, the messier it gets the better! To keep cleanup time to a minimum, keep your place setting as simple as possible. Plain white plates make the color of your cookies pop, and a no-fuss glitter napkin ring adds some effortless bling. No need for any excess décor!
Instead of giving each guest a fancy spreader for the icing, go with plastic knives instead: They get the job done, and you can chuck ’em in the garbage when the party’s over. To pretty them up, just wrap some inexpensive twine around the handles.
For a quick festive touch, pour some strawberry milk into a mason jar. If you don’t like the taste of strawberry milk but still want to keep the pink theme going, just use regular milk and stir one drop of red food coloring into each glass. Finally, candy-striped straws nicely round out the overall laid-back and whimsical vibe of your sweet soiree.
And now for the main event: the cookies! The best thing about Cheryl’s Valentine’s Day kit is that the oh-so-soft and delicious cutout cookies are already baked, so the hard work has already been done for you. Just remove them from the individual wrappers and arrange them on a large red plate. You’re ready to go! We used a rustic-chic DIY chalkboard coaster to label the cookies and complement the twine used in the place setting.
A cookie decorating party wouldn’t be quite as fun—or delicious—without some downright scrumptious icing. Your kit is already equipped with Cheryl’s smooth, rich and creamy vanilla and chocolate frosting. But for even more decorating options, you can order an extra tub of strawberry frosting (or any other flavors your taste buds desire). And since each kind of icing has its own personality, show them off in mixed-’n’-matched white bowls or cups. Then, label each bowl for your guests using a few more chalkboard coasters. It’ll give your table an adorably shabby yet put-together look.
These festive little bits of sugar add a kiss of cuteness to your Valentine’s Day cookies. To dress up your sprinkles for the occasion, pour them into individual spice bowls and prop them up on sturdy glitter cupcake wrappers. Keep them organized by grouping them on a DIY chalkboard cheese board and labeling them. To finish the look, bring even more homespun elegance to your setup with these handmade tissue paper roses and popcorn hearts, or create them with your guests for some extra DIY fun!
It’s the time you’ve all been waiting for. … Dig in! Grab your cookies and your trimmings and make your own sweet Valentine’s Day creations. There’s no limit to what you can do, so be adventurous! You and your guests will have a blast showing off your cookie-decorating skills and swapping your heart-shaped treats. Oh, and let’s not forget the best part of all: eating!
The fun doesn’t have to stop with cookies. You can use your frosting and sprinkles to put some V-Day cheer on all sorts of goodies. What other kinds of snacks will you be decorating with your Valentine’s Day cutout cookie kit?
