Lovingly Made Bakes for this Valentine’s Day
This Valentine’s Day, go outside the norm for gift ideas and bake that special someone some tasty treats – it’s sure to show them how much you love them! You don’t have to be an experienced baker to give these recipes a go either; they’re simple and easy to follow. Our stand mixer did the hard work for us, getting the mixtures as smooth as possible without tiring out our arms.
Geometric Chocolate Cake Hearts
These cute little treats are sure to hit the spot for your Valentine. The combination of cake and a chocolate or candied coating make this recipe a winner in anyone’s book; you’ll love watching their face light up as they bite into one. We added our own spin to this recipe, using chocolate for the coating and chocolate cake for the filling.

Strawberry Heart Cake
With such an elegant finish, this heart cake looks professional while remaining relatively simple to make. Just add your mixture ingredients to your stand mixer and let it whisk it into a smooth batter, ready to pour into your cake tins. The great thing about decorating this Valentine’s Day cake is that you don’t have to be neat; the rough style of frosting allows you unleash your artistic side. We swapped the strawberry icing out for chocolate topped with fresh strawberries, a match made in heaven.

Valentine’s Day Brownies
Chocolate brownies are a favourite for many and we can see why with their gooey centres and rich chocolate taste. These Valentine’s themed brownies were easy to make using a heart shaped cookie cutter, giving it a clean heart outline without the outside of the brownie crumbling. Once you have cut them out, you can put them in the fridge ready for reheating later and serving with ice cream.
