As our news feeds light up with news of engagements this Valentine’s Weekend, I wanted to share the small part I took in planning one of these special proposals. Nate knew he wanted to propose to his love this weekend, and knew that he wanted to do it over dessert, but was also sure that he didn’t want her to bite into, or swallow, the ring. I combined two of her favorite desserts-red velvet cake and chocolate covered strawberries-to create this proposal dessert.
A moist red velvet cake with cream cheese icing on the inside and cream cheese and buttercream icing on the outside. Rimmed with chocolate covered strawberries and a chocolate box on top.
The chocolate box on the cake allowed for the ring to be hidden on the dessert without being consumed. The chocolate heart on the cover of the box says “Be Mine”. And a chocolate heart inside the box says “Forever”.
Congratulations, Tanya and Nate!
