Valentine’s Day Desserts For Two

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, which means chocolate, strawberry, and small desserts are the center of attention.  This roundup of Small Cake and Cupcake Recipes – Perfect for Two highlights more of the ‘fancy’ desserts on the blog.  I only consider these cake and cupcakes recipes fancy because they require the extra step of being frosted.  Otherwise, they are super easy to make.

If you are looking for a wider assortment of sweet treats to celebrate, be sure to check out the Valentine’s Day collection.  Here you will find cookies, pudding, candy, pots de crème, and even a delectable edible cookie dough!  And you may even come across a healthier, but beautifully decadent, parfait!
