Photo and Idea from:
This pretty but easy dessert is perfect for one of those romantic nights with camp.  Use Hostess Twinkies and strawberry topping and whipped cream for this concoction.  Cut the Twinkies in the shape of a heart, add fruit (and maybe some whipped cream) and Voila! Make your sweetheart laugh but also enjoy this fun dessert.

Real Simple's website offered some new cupcake ideas that you might like to use for your wedding, shower or just for a nice dessert.  The above sundae is called "Sundae Best" and it's a minicupcake topped with hot fudge and a scoop of quality vanilla ice cream.  It's making me hungry right now!

This cupcake is called "The Short Stack"  and is a luscious concoction that resembles strawberry shortcake.  Slice your cupcake in thirds, and put back together with a filling of vanilla flavored whipped cream and berries of your choice.  Add a sprig of mint to finish off the pretty presentation.

Use votive holders as a perfect container for a bite-size cupcake. Use mini-muffin tins, gently dust the cupcakes with 10x sugar, and you can even add candles or shortened sparklers.

A new take on cake at your wedding are cake balls.  Cake balls serve as favors or as part of your sweet table, and can be displayed on trays or attached to toothpicks and inserted into foam shapes.  If you looking for a little taste of heaven, cake balls are just what you’ve been waiting for — bite-size bits of moist cake blended with rich frosting, surrounded in a deliciously beautiful confectionery coating. An exciting twist on cupcakes and a sophisticated alternative to traditional desserts, it’s no wonder why they’ve become such a sweet sensation. The Cake Ball Company and others started making our decadent, hand-made cake balls long before they became a dessert trend. You can purchase cake balls ready made or make your own.  Combining tried and true family recipes with the finest ingredients, cake balls are a one-of-a-kind experience. Go ahead, indulge. Just know that you won’t be able to stop with just one. But don’t worry, you can always get more!
