Serve with champagne or sparkling wine for a more traditional twist.

The amount of sugar on this board can be offset with a hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate.

Popular Substitutions & Additions

For tips, use a thick enough frosting that is pipeable enough to hold the star tip design. I used store-bought cream cheese frosting and dyed it pink.

Replace any charcuterie board items with your favorite pink, red or white snacks such as: Conversation heart candies, Cherry Twizzlers bites, and White cheddar popcorn.

Also, aim for variety, as this board can be completely customized to your liking. For a little extra flair, try the following:

  • vegetables and fruits
  • nuts
  • something salty to balance out the sweetness
  • desserts (pre-made or homemade such as cookies)
  • dipping sauces and spreads
