Valentine's Day Truffles--Victoria's Secret

 The past two weeks at Victoria's Secret they were offering a box of truffles with all purchases over a certain amount. Luckily, I needed to buy some new shape-wear for my Barrister's Ball last weekend. (Note: They were amazing, and so much better than Spanx, I would highly recommend them!)
 The truffles were pretty...interesting, to say the least.

Valentine's Day Two-Toned Cheetah Print Cookies

 Just in case you're feeling wild this Valentine's Day. (Too much?)
 These cheetah print cookies are actually pretty easy, especially since I cheeted and used a stencil. (Haha...get it? Cheetah, cheeted? Yeah, I'm lame).

Sprinkles Cupcakes in Chicago, IL

While in Chicago, IL, last weekend, Will and I had to make a stop at Sprinkles Cupcakes. The cupcakes definitely did not disappoint! They were a bit overpriced but absolutely amazing. Overall, I think you could say that about our entire Chicago trip--overpriced, but amazing.

Love Letter Valentine's Day Cut-out Cookies

These love letter cookies couldn't be easier and look really cute with a simple heart sprinkle "seal". These cookies were inspired by the Baking in Heels version HERE, but mine are much easier to make. I don't like waiting for cookie sections to dry--"ain't nobody got time for that!"

Football Stadium Cut-out cookies

Here is the final cookie! Football stadiums, complete with adorable little sprinkle "fans" in the audience.
These cookies are inspired by Ali Bee's football cookies, found HERE.

Super Bowl XLVII Cut-out Cookies

I thought these cookies might be really difficult, but having an extra rectangular cookie I decided to give it a shot, and they turned out to be fairly simple.

Here is the actual logo for a comparison. (Don't judge me too harshly please.) I decided not to try to write out the "Super Bowl" line because it seemed too small and I knew it would be difficult to pipe.
