All This Week - Valentine's Treats

This week is Valentine's week and because nothing says "I Love You" quite like sweetness and chocolate, we've created some lovely goodies that will help you say just that to your loved ones.
Let's start off with cup cakes; this week we're offering Devil's Food Cake with Chocolate Fudge buttercream, Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese buttercream and French Vanilla Cake with Raspberry buttercream.  These are all decorated with edible flowers and of course are made with pure butter.  

Here we have our delicious Scottish Shortbread.  Now, if you've never heard of this before or never tried it, I (Lynne) can assure you that you will not have tasted any shortbread as good as this. Having been born and bread in good old England, I know my shortbread and this recipe has the right texture and taste enough to make any Scotsman cry!  Not all shortbreads are created equal you see, it's a long story and a long history.  We serve our's simply in fingers with the traditional fork holes on the top. Once again we only use pure butter for our shortbread and you will definitely taste the difference.

By popular demand these little French goodies are back!  We have made them pretty and pink and filled them with a raspberry buttercream, so delicious!
Heart shaped large and small sugar cookies covered in sweetness, and love with 24k gold painted decorations for the ultimate finish we have put these into little gold boxes (1 large or 4 small per box) so that all you have to do is seal it with a kiss.

A delightful little cake to share this is a perfect size for two people and looks so pretty in it's individual box, a lovely gift for anyone one that you can even use it to pop the question! If you would like us to customize your cake with a message....just give us a little advanced warning and we'll be happy to do that for you free of charge.
Red velvet champagne truffles, the ultimate in chocolaty decadence.  These are not for the light hearted and are bitter-sweet cocoa covering, a la francaise!  These are presented in a little box of six with hearts on each truffle.
Little pieces of love, these heart shaped cookies are sandwiched with buttercream and packaged, two at a time in a little clear bag and tied with a pink ribbon.
