Cupid Shops at Ashley’s!

Love is in the air! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner we’re filling our shop with festive cookies, cakes, cupcakes and pops. With an extra dose of love…the most important ingredient of course…in all of our Valentine’s treats, you can’t go wrong! Whether you are enjoying the single life, recently engaged, newly married, helping your kids with classroom goodies, or celebrating your 50th year of marriage, you can’t help but feel the love this month.

It’s this time of year that “the perfect gift” seems to matter more than ever. Not to worry, Ashley’s has been around for a few Valentine’s Days (32 to be exact!) and we have just the gifts to show your love. We’ve stocked our bakery with plenty of sweet treats for everyone on your list and a few extra just for you!

Here are just a few of our favorite Valentine’s gifts:

1. Passion Pops
Passion Pops are a sweet treat that make a bold impact. With gooey caramel sandwiched between two vanilla wafers, dipped in rich chocolate, and served on a stick, you simply can’t go wrong with this bite-sized treat. Need a fun centerpiece for your table? Wrap a block of floral foam in Valentine themed paper or ribbon and proudly display a whole bouquet of Passion Pops for your love!

 2. Fondant Iced Heart Cookies
These iced, heart-shaped cookies are perfect to share with a crowd! Take a plate to work, send them to school with your kids, or send some love over to your neighbors! You can wrap them individually using a simple sandwich bag (no zip top) and pink or red ribbon. Slip a note on the ribbon before you tie it around the bag. Don’t worry about getting creative if you’re short on time – just borrow the phrases from conversation hearts!

 3. Red Velvet Cupcakes
This is a classic Valentine’s favorite! Deep red, vanilla buttermilk cake with just a hint of chocolate flavor, frosted with a swirl of decadent cream cheese frosting. You simply can’t go wrong with a box of these delicious cupcakes. One bite, and you’ll be head over heels!

 4. Chocolate Truffle Cake
You don’t want to miss this Ashley’s specialty! Once a year, we make a cake that resembles a box of chocolates. We use truffles, candy hearts, and other Valentine goodies to decorate the top of a heart-shaped cake. With this truly scrumptious dessert, you get the best of both worlds – cake and a box of chocolates! Nothing says “I love you” quite like it!

We are sure you will find something to fall in love with this month at Ashley’s Pastry Shop. Stop by to say hello and pick up treats for everyone on your list. And don’t forget to nonchalantly mention our name to your Sweetheart if you’re hoping to be on the receiving end of some of these treats! Valentine’s Day is one of our favorite times of year, and remember…Cupid shops at Ashley’s!
