Valentine’s Week!

Maple Glazed Gooey Cinnamon Rolls

I don’t have much time today in this Valentine’s madness to type pretty prose, but I thought I’d at least show you some pictures of what is being offered this week at Sarah’s Creation Florist.  Pictures are worth a thousand words, right?  While plain in color, the photo above already has me drooling just looking at it because I know what gooey, buttery-sweet goodness lurks beneath that maple-coffee glaze.  Sigh.   I wish I had kept one for myself!

Caramel Sticky Buns with Caramelized Tangerine Marmalade and Pistachios right out of the oven before the pan was flipped.

The Caramel Sticky Buns successfully flipped!

The large pans of Cinnamon Rolls and Sticky Buns are great for families or brought to the office.  Whoever you bring these to, they will thank you!

But of course I also made “individual” sized pans for you to split with your loved one. (Splitting, or sharing, is the loving thing to do–do not keep it all to yourself!)

"Individual" Sticky Buns

Almond-Orange Tarts revamped for Valentine's day with Blood Oranges arranged in a heart shape.

Croissant aux Amandes (Almond filled croissants)

Let’s get a look inside one without filling, to best see the layers, shall we?

Beautiful! Look at those tender, light, fluffy layers!

Pain au Chocolat (Chocolate filled croissant), a French patisserie staple!

Here’s a photo my Valentine’s Chocolate Tarts.  Unfortunately, my camera was on a weird setting and my lighting terrible!

Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Tart (with a "window" to the raspberry puree) and Chocolate Salted Peanut Caramel Tart

So let’s look at some non-Valentine’s tarts that have better lighting!

Much better, right?  Next are Frosted Sugar Cookie Pops.  This was my first time making these and I think they turned out quite well, don’t you think?

Frosted Sugar Cookie Pops

All packaged up and ready for their delivery!

While these pops are delicious, I will always and forever prefer my Grandma Edith’s sugar cookies to any other cookie out there.  Thus, I had to make these cookies too!

A cookie "Conversation Heart"!

And finally, last, but not least, truffles!  For this Valentine’s Day favorite I made Banana’s Foster Truffles with banana, a brown sugar caramel, and rum and also Aztec Truffles with cinnamon, a hint of orange, and a dusting of cayenne pepper.

Whew!  That’s everything!  I think I will go take a nap now or maybe I’ll just go to bed and not wake up until morning.  Waking up at 3:00AM to start my croissants rising the past two nights has tuckered me out!   Good night and Happy Valentine’s Day!
