Valentine’s Day options for all things yummy!

Did you know that cup cakes were named so, because, they were usually made from only a cup full of ingredients? Also, cake was always associated with luxury and considered a symbol of well-being, because, it was usually baked on special occasions and made with the finest and most expensive ingredients!

Fact about cakes

Cakes have symbolic value, associating them with special occasions and the importance of the person for whom they are bought for. Though the cakes are not as expensive now, but their meaning of showing someone you care, still holds.

Surprise! Surprise!

If you are like me, you would probably not mind waking up to cake from your loved one, with Valentine’s Day just around the corner. Well it is hard to deny that they do tug the strings of one’s heart with their delicious sweetness and varied flavors time and time again.

Probably we would all be eating cakes all day for breakfast, lunch and dinner if they did not have too many calories that sew up our clothes when we least want them to (right before a Valentine Day date is what I am hinting at).

I love the gesture that I was presented with today morning, have a look:

I am guessing by the variety that this hamper holds, he still doesn’t know which flavor I like the most. But OK I am not going to judge today! It was awfully sweet to just open my eyes and find this cute hamper lying on my pillow where he usually sleeps. Needless to say, it made me all mushy to wake up in bed with this. Find out what all flavors he chose for me from All things yummy below:

3. Cup cakes

The cup cakes in the hamper were Mocha cup cakes, soaked in Orange brandy and Kahlua liquor, with the icing of Bailey’s Irish Buttercream! They cut through like a dream with excellent softness, but you can’t have more than one of these dream cup cakes at a time! Rest assured, a sweet start to this day can only result in an even sweeter day!

2. Cake in a Jar

The flavors I got were Black Forest and Red Velvet. These are the flavors that I loved the most! The desserts from All things yummy have a home like handmade feeling to them that cannot be ignored and at the same time the simplicity of the flavors that came out of the hamper are definitely making me skip all my meals today! The Cake in a Jar is by far the cutest concept that I have come across and found unique to All things yummy .

Be it the vintage flower patterned cloth tied with a Red ribbon around the jar or the Red and White Polka dotted cloth, both the flavors and the containers are a winner, simply for the creativity with which they present the cake.

The ribbons tied around the jar come with tags that you can get personalized from All things yummy! I think the Cake in a Jar, will make a perfect party favor, for a future party that I may plan.

1. Mini Heart Shaped Cakes

So there’s an old story about the origin of cake, it is said that during the early days the cakes were always white and hence were even called as food for the angels. However, their counterpart, cakes for the demons, started becoming popular in the 20th Century. Needless to say, these cakes were dark and made of chocolate! I say they can’t be that far from truth because these chocolate truffle cakes from All things yummy are sinfully delicious.

For me this was a complete package full of surprise, but, I am going to tell him to give me a greeting card with lots of stuff written in it along with the hamper, next time! Oh wait, it was supposed to be a surprise and one doesn’t get to choose the surprise.

Your sugary faffer,

Ruchi
