I fell in love with this Valentine’s cake on Pinterest and found the party it’s attached to on Catch My Party. So, I’m thrilled that Leoni Jena from the blog Just Call Me Martha has graciously allowed Double the Fun Parties to feature her Valentine’s luncheon here.
Leoni was inspired by Kikki K’s Sweet Heart collection (see below) and used elements of it in her party.
So, aside from the cake, the backdrop of envelopes may be my favorite element. Leoni bought 40 envelopes at a dollar store and stuck them straight to her wall. Love the single red envelope!
Here is another shot of the cake. Leoni says, “The cake was inspired by the gorgeous heart bunting pattern on the Kikki K wrapping paper and the heart pattern found on most of their Valentine cards. It is actually a very simple cake, I used a clay extruder to create the red “string” and edible paper to create the hearts.” OK, so it may be simple for Leoni, but I’m impressed.
Leonie’s Valentine’s day card for her hubs – love the combo of modern + polka dot.
To create paper elements for her table, Leoni used the Kikki K sticker book. Very economical!
For favors, Leoni used Chinese take-out boxes and filled them with heart chocolates. Leoni says, “These cute cards came from the Kikki mini note set, aren’t they adorable? Mini heart pegs are also from Kikki K.”
In addition to the beautiful tablescape, Leoni made all the food herself, including mini raspberry trifles, mini cheesecake bites, raspberry and coconut mini cupcakes, chocolate hearts, love letter cookies heart sugar cookies, and coconut & pineapple milkshakes. (Note to self: visit Australia, make friends with Leoni.)
These love letter sugar cookies have an edible paper stamp (stamp design from Kikki K).
These heart cookies on a stick also were inspired by the Kikki K collection.
Finally, here are the individual cheesecakes with red chocolate and a red heart topper.
It’s all just so fabulous. Leoni is a self-taught baker and cake decorator. Her blog, Just Call Me Martha, is, of course, a tongue-in-cheek homage to Martha Stewart where she features parties, cakes and crafts.
