Valentine’s Day is all about showing your loved ones you care, whether that’s spoiling them with treats or cute handwritten message. If your Valentine or Galentine has a sweet-tooth, we’ve rounded up the nine best London spots delivering pink-hued Valentine goodies to your door.

From Baked by Steph’s hilarious Friends bake to Lily Vanilli’s magnificent cupid layered showstopper, here’s what to order in for February 14th.

The Proof 

Treat a loved one to a truly special sweet-toothed gift from The Proof, East London’s pudding and cake delivery specialists. The Proof team, renowned for their detailed designs and moreish profiteroles, have crafted a range of special one-off treats that can be delivered to all London postcodes. 

Choose from the heart-shaped wreath made with their signature choux and crème chantilly Profiteroles, topped with dark chocolate sauce, gold leaf and strawberries (yum!) or go for the pink L’Amour three-tier love heart cake showstopper. The team have also created a ‘Passion Proof’ hamper, filled with Chapel Down fizz, a bouquet of flowers, candle and of course the heart-shaped profiterole wreath. You won’t regret ordering something from The Proof for your special someone.

Cutter & Squidge 

We can always count on Cutter & Squidge, the bakery that’s dedicated to the health conscious but who still love a sweet treat, to come through with the prettiest sweet bakes. And their Valentine’s Day offerings are no exception. 

Share the love this Valentine’s and opt for one of Cutter & Squidge’s themed hampers, from the afternoon tea experience perfect for those missing the real deal right now, to the vegan love hamper that’s filled with plant-based goodies for those who are carrying on Veganuary further.

Anyone who has visited Cutter & Squidge in person or has ordered from them before, will know all about their famed ‘biskie’, the sandwiched dessert that’s a cross between a cookie and a cake filled with cream and goodies. The team have brought back their favourite Valentine’s flavour, the pearl biskie. It’s filled with strawberry vanilla buttercream with a white chocolate pearl nested inside and filled with peach nectar. It’s sure to bring a smile to your Valentine or Galentine’s face.

Lily Vanilli 

Have you ever seen a more magnificent Valentine’s cake? 

Lily Vanilli has been up to her old tricks once again and has created one mega Valentine’s showstopper. Treat your love with a table pleaser and order in the Valentine’s Angel Cake. This decadent cake is made up of layers of soft vanilla sponge, filled with fresh raspberries and iced in pink frills and love hearts. It’s then topped with a cute soy wax candle from Angela Mugnai Emporium. It’s sure to bring a smile and a laugh to your loved one’s faces come February 14th.

Ladurée

If you’re not celebrating together this year, add a smile to a loved one’s face from afar this Valentine’s with Ladurée’s Valentine’s collection. 

Available from Ladurée in Burlington Arcade for Pre-Order and Call & Collect, the Parisian macaron specialists have a few assortments to choose from, including the Valentine’s Day macaron gifting box that’s bundled with four ‘Be Mine’ and four passionfruit heart shaped macarons. They’ve also teamed up with Neil Strain Floral Couture to offer an extra special macaron gift, coupled with a hand-tied rose flower arrangement. It’s sure to woo your Valentine.

Baked by Steph 

Whether you’re looking for your partner or Galentine, treat them to an adorable bake from Baked by Steph. We love the ‘You’re my lobster’ cookie, a fun take of the Friends episode where Ross tells Rachel she’s his lobster. 

If your friend is obsessed with the Duke of Hastings from Bridgerton, treat her to a limited edition letterbox cookie of his face or opt for the Harry Styles cookie for the Styler in your life.

Le Choux

For the choux lover in your life, tempt them with a box of pastries from Le Choux London. 

The West London bakery is renowned for their French patisseries, especially their signature choux. Add a little luxury to your Valentine’s Day gift and order in a few boxes of their speciality choux, including the Pistachio & White Chocolate Choux, or go fruity with the tangy Passionfruit Choux. They’ve also got tempting profiteroles too if your lover or friend is a chocolate fiend.

Konditor

Helping to spread some joy during lockdown is Konditor. The team have been busy crafting a Valentine’s selection that’s fit for any sweet-toothed lover, whether they’re a biscuit or cake fan. 

Choose from the Red Velvet Lover’s Cake, Love Letter Brownie Slab or fall in love with the adorable Lovers’ Delight gingerbread couples. Or, really spoil your special someone rotten with one of the gift boxes, complete with a selection of the Valentine’s goodies. Order it to arrive on Valentine’s weekend and you’ll have your elevenses treats sorted.
