I’m so excited for Valentine’s Day! It’s really about showing your appreciation to your loved ones - no matter who that may be! Spouses, children, siblings, parents, grandparents, even pets can be a part of Valentine’s Day!
Some of our favorite pastries and desserts get a Valentine's Day facelift!
I think some of the easiest ways to show you put thought into the day is picking up some sweet treats. Our bakery has a wide range of options that will make your sweetheart and your sweet tooth melt!
Treats for Cake Lovers
My husband is the chocoholic and loves all of kinds – white, dark and milk, he doesn’t care. His favorite treat is our Triple Chocolate Tiger Cake - Layers of every chocolate variety with cake and mousse. Yum!
The trendiest cake variety these days is Red Velvet and although we’ve got that going all year round, it’s got a special place for Valentine’s Day. We make heart-shaped cakes, cake rolls with cream cheese icing, cupcakes and even red velvet brownie bites!
Treats for Kids
My kids appreciate a morning treat before heading off to school. Their favorites are the Red Velvet Donut Holes. They’re moist and a perfect size for their little hands. It’s great starting their day off with this treat – and frankly I’d rather give them the sugar before they leave the house rather than before bed that night!
We’ve even got some new gluten-free and sugar-free treats in the bakery. Although they aren’t specifically Valentine’s Day related, they’re certainly festive and provide a great sweet option for those people who have restrictions in their diet.
A few chocolate covered long-stemmed strawberries are what would make me happy (ok and maybe some flowers? Hint, hint honey). Just that bit of sweetness to finish my dinner – I’m not too fussy!
What’s the best Valentine’s Day treat you’ve ever had?
