heart milk cubes

With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I am excited to share a couple projects to celebrate the holiday with subtly and style. These milk heart cubes are a sweet surprise for your man’s morning coffee or a tall glass of milk. As they melt, the milk turns pink (the twins were in love!).

To make the milk cubes, combine milk and a few drops of red food coloring together in a small bowl. Fill an ice cube tray, my heart one is from Ikea and freeze overnight. So easy, right!?!

PS. A few other Valentine favorites you might have missed… individual mini fondue, sweet love brownies, stitched hearts (these would make adorable Valentines), crocheted heart cake toppers and one of my first DIY blog posts painted love bottles.

    I wonder if you could make Strawberry Quick and freeze it in the ice cubes? Then it would be strawberry tasting as they melted.

    • Victoria says:

      Yes, Sharon you could totally use strawberry milk. I originally made these to put in coffee and thought it would be great to have them without taste, but in the milk that would be perfect!

Polka Dot Cake from Bake Pop Pan Valentine’s Day Egg in the Basket | Reclaiming Provincial The other day, my brother and I were talking about fish sandwiches. (Weird opening sentence, I know.) He informed me that the café where he works serves a sandwich called the Son of Salmon, to which I replied, “. . . wait, what?!” I spent the next hour brainstorming sandwich names for my future food cart, Killer Sandwiches. The ToasTed Bundy. The Jarls Manson. You’ve probably seen many full-size rainbow cakes (here’s one with White Chocolate Buttercream and who can resist this Vanilla Rainbow Cake ?). But there’s something special about having a tiny little rainbow cake of one’s own, which is why I’m making these for a friend’s birthday later this month. They’re just the ticket to bring a smile to anyone’s face, especially a slightly birthday-weary guest of honor! These are easy to make, and a fantastic candidate for “make-ahead” due to the freezer time involved. The parchment paper is actually, I believe, the most important part of the recipe—the layers are so thin that there’s no other way to handle them. [...]

[...] Sample Category Page For My Little Valentines February 14, 2012 by Randi Dukes 1 Comment I love Valentine’s Day.  I know it’s a hyped-up, commercialized day but I also think it’s a fun opportunity to show loved ones some special attention.  What could be wrong with that? Celebrating this day with Phil is the best and I can’t wait for our date tonight but I also love to celebrate with my five little valentines. They’ll arrive home after school and, if the rain holds off, walk up a valentine path {inspiration found here} … … then snack on warm heart-shaped cinnamon rolls … … and milk with pink heart cubes {milk tinted pink … inspiration found here}.
