Baked goods are an essential part of Valentine’s Day, even when I was single. And, Valentine’s Day is a great way to get treats — even though it might look different than in years pasts.
So, if you’re looking to treat your Valentine — or even yourself, here are some great places to get some delicious baked goods.
Donut Crazy is hands down my favorite place to grab donuts. If you are not familiar with them, they have regular donuts (glazed, sprinkled, etc.), but then they have these insane donuts. For example, they have donuts with Nutella, cookies, and more. And, I am pretty sure that they will have something special for Valentine’s Day. They have locations in New Haven, Shelton, Branford, West Hartford, Westport, and Stratford. Be sure to check their website for more information on how to get your hands on donuts during the pandemic.
You might remember my interview with the owner Adriana about her shop. However, her cupcakes are perfect for a date night in. Good Morning Cupcake has mini cupcakes. Which means instead of committing to one single cupcake, you can sample a bunch of little ones. I love this idea, especially since you can try different flavors, and not commit. This is perfect for your Valentine so that everyone gets what they want.
Home of the famous cupcake truck, Sugar Bakery is the best oasis for your sweet tooth. They have a whole page on their website dedicated to Valentine’s Day with treats and interactive date ideas. They also have their cupcake and dessert menu, which you can order online as well. I highly recommend them, because their cupcakes always make a great treat.
These cookies are some of my favorite cookies. They always taste fresh and they are so delicious. And, they ship all over the country! You can also order cookies online or go to their store in Hamden.
This bakery has a little something for everyone. Pastries, cookies, cupcakes, and so much more. No matter what you choose, it is delicious. There are many locations across the state, including Wallingford, Hartford, Plainville, Rocky Hill, and Middletown.
