Last Minute Valentine’s Day DIY: Brownie with Sprinkles
What makes Valentine’s day special for you? For me, well, something about hearts, red balloons and chocolate deliciousness.
I wanted to celebrate with these LOVELY things and had this idea in a dream, a huge heart shaped brownie cake made with colorful sprinkles and flowers! and this is what I come up with, not exactly what I had in my mind (like if I had any idea) but a really cute project anyway.
How to Make Something like This:
1.Just so you know, I am not the greatest baker in the world, I would love to be, but I am simply not that good ;( So, to avoid any embarrassment, meaning, a baking fail, I used one of those easy to make brownie boxes. I followed the instructions and baked a brownie cake in a 9in circular pan.
2.When the brownie was ready it looked like this.
3.Then, I drew a heart on a piece of paper and used it as a mold.
4.I was super careful and used a kitchen knife to cut the heart shape.
5.When it was ready, it was time to have fun with the sprinkle design. I drew a draft idea on paper before I started, just to know how to start and what colors to use.
6.Although my idea was to create something that looked like mexican embroidery, which is why I used those kind of sprinkles that look like thread, i felt like it didn’t work out quite as well as I imagined. Even so, I love it and as a good proud brownie mama, I think it’s beautiful!
Tell me, how do you celebrate Valentine’s day? Do you usually cook or go out for dinner?
We are planning on going out that day, but I am all about coming home, opening a bottle of wine and enjoy a delicious brownie with my honey.
