My dream dessert for Valentine’s Day is Baked Alaska, a heavenly trifecta of cake, meringue, and ice cream. I am not yet brave enough to take on the task of creating this confection, but if you dare, here is a recipe!

I will pick up a few macarons from Ladurée instead. Their seasonal flavours are Vanilla Pecan, Chocolate Caramel and a heart-shaped Rose Lychee. I don't need a holiday to indulge and I can tell you they are delicious!

InNew York, Dominique Ansel Bakery will be busy, but I might partake in their Blossoming Hot Chocolate a few days before or after the holiday!

A box of chocolates is an obvious choice, but I must tell you that a box of Sparkling Pink Marc de Champagne Truffles by Charbonnel et Walker is always welcomed. The description says it all: “Blissful ganache centers of milk chocolate, butter and champagne are enrobed in white chocolate with a hint of strawberry, finished with a dusting of icing sugar, the then tucked in a sweet pink hat box.”

Make sure to buy a box for yourself as well!



Never underestimate the power of rose (or violet!) water and syrup in a glass of champagne, whipped cream or ice cream!

And finally, you don’t have to forsake your New Year’s resolutions involving health to enjoy decadent treats. Why not enjoy a bowl of strawberries in this pearlescent bowl?

A sweet scent can also be just as enjoyable as a confection—Laura Mercier’s Crème Brûlée Honey Bath is so decadent that it will satisfy any sweet tooth!
