Valerie Confections out in Los Angeles has not only a lovely identity (pink, brown, and hints of gold?! oh my!) and an amazing website, but they also specialize in all things chocolate. I’m smitten when anything tastes good and comes wrapped in bows and boxes.
The have everything from chocolate bars, to truffles, to petit fours. They even have preserves and galettes! And what’s even better is that most of their chocolate treats can be shipped to us hungry people over here on the east coast!
Cakes too? Oh Valerie Confections you must ease up on the sweets.
I am not one for baking too much. It’s not that I’m bad at it, because every time I do bake I get compliments. It’s just that it’s so strict and limiting. I’m far too spacey for leveling out my flour and sifting my confectioners sugar. But I do love to look at the amazing treats that people bake, and with Valentines Day around the corner this is the best time to look!
I believe that Valentines Day should not be celebrated in the way that most people do. Call me untraditional, but I think this should be a time to merely appreciate the person . Cook, bake, massage, just simply pamper the person you love. Don’t go out of the way to buy extravagant gifts, make them! Show the that you have put time and special thought in to what they like and who they are as a person and why you love them.
This post was inspired by this cake from I Am Baker.
And because of this cake I will be updating over the next few days about what you can make, bake, or cook for that person you appreciate and love in your life. Who is that person to you? And what do you plan on doing for them this holiday?
