February is the month of love, and you can celebrate a week full of days leading up to Valentine’s Day. Finding the best way to shower your valentine with love might be hard, and that is why we are here. Whoever you want to gift a little something to will enjoy dessert. Girls and guys alike are going to like it. You can customize the flavours and appearance as you wish if you order from us! Even if you live in a different city or country from the person you love, we can get sweet treats delivered to them by a local home baker in their city/town. So here are some of the special treats you can choose from for Valentine’s Day:
You can get them in the typical pink or red for the season, and customize the filling flavours. You can also get messages written on it and even heart-shaped macarons. Macarons are always a treat to eat, because of their unique texture and rich fillings. Chocolate ganache is a very popular filling, and so are some off-beat flavours like paan.

This is a step above cupcakes, and you can get them in any colour and flavour possible. The advantage of getting Cakesicles is that it is much lesser in quantity than a full cake. This way, you can choose how much you want to eat and even get more than one flavour. It is also aesthetically more appealing and makes for great pictures!

Chocolate covered Strawberries
Strawberries are in season and taste heavenly with chocolate. If you do not want to get a cake with fresh cream and strawberries and you are looking for something more, this is it. It can be decorated with sprinkles, drips and even glitter. It makes for the perfect luxurious gift and would pair well with a bouquet of roses.

Similar to Cakesicles, these are also cake and frosting on a stick. The difference here is that it is just at the end of a stick, and leaves a lot of room for customization. You can get bows and ribbons, or even your initials placed on the cake pop stick.

If you decide to get a cake, you could try something new. Ask for buttercream or whipped cream to be painted on to your cream (as in the picture below). This makes for a nice mix of colours, yet remains classic and simple. You could also get hearts stencilled on the cake or fault line cakes.

There are all kinds of art that you can make with icing on cookies! You can pick between royal icing (sweet, but light) and buttercream (much heavier), and get anything cute drawn on the cookies. The cookies are decorated so artistically that you might feel bad biting into one. But the taste will definitely have you going back for more!
