Mon Paris Patisserie


When you think about Valentine’s Day there are three things that always come to mind: chocolate, flowers, and presents. Mon Paris has all three, and they are all edible. Celebrate the day of love with their beautiful chocolate creations in the shape of potted Camellias, teddy bears, high heels, and even Louis Vuitton bags. Their Valentine’s collection also includes chocolate boxes, chocolate heart lollies, and a heart-shaped strawberry brownie cake.

Punk Rock Pastries

For those looking for edgier designs, there’s no better place than Punk Rock Pastries. Their Valentine’s collection is now available for pre-order, and it includes two different packs of anti-Valentine cookies with messages such as “Swipe Left” and “F*ck Valentines Halloween is Better”, as well as a pack of 6 kinky heart cookies with some naughty phrases… if you’re into that.

Pies are delicious and a great way to celebrate the sweetest holiday (or is that Halloween?), but they can get a bit too heavy and you can’t try a lot of flavours. Fear not. The Pie Hole has a special Valentine mini pie box available for pre-order. The box includes 9 mini 3-inch sweet pies in an assortment of Valentine’s flavours and Pie Hole favourites.

Lunar New Year celebrations are slowing down, but you can still celebrate it in conjunction with Valentine’s Day at Bella Gelateria by getting their three seasonal flavours: the White Rabbit Candy inspired by the iconic Chinese milk candy; the Golden Cadillac an interpretation of the famous cocktail with a strong vanilla flavour and notes of anise, juniper, and cinnamon; and the traditional Bacio gelato to bring that signature Valentine’s chocolate flavour with a hazelnut surprise.

Soft Peaks
