Sweet Musings: Our Blog
We're feeling the love this week, as the Valentine's orders are pouring in. Each season, we take great joy in trying new recipes or bringing back favorite desserts from years past.
Welcome to the first edition of Themed Thursdays, where we'll post some of our creations that fall within a specific theme...color scheme...you get the idea.

Ah, Valentine's Day! It's the season of love for many people. But here in the bakery, as we chocolate-dip fresh strawberries and bake our heart-shaped cakes, this time of year feels only a little different for us.

For us, the season of love is actually year-round.
