This Valentine’s Day, there’s no need to go out and spend extra money on a fancy bouquet of flowers or a large assortment of chocolates. Instead, you can do some baking to show your affection.  There are so many simple and easy desserts you can make and decorate for your love. Here are our top three favorite Valentine’s treats:

1. Classic Red Velvet Cupcakes

This cupcake is a classic Valentine’s dessert. The red color makes for a beautiful display in any dessert assortment. For a little extra flair, you can sprinkle some red velvet crumbs on top of the frosting to add even more luscious red color to your treat. Not only does this cupcake taste awesome, but it is certainly dressed to impress for this holiday.
