February is here, and you know what it means. Apart from the pink skies and the cosiness of an ebbing winter, love is in the air! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it demands that love be celebrated. If you’re still uncertain about what you can do for your beloved, food is the way to go! There is nothing in the world that food cannot fix or make better. So chuck the flowers and the fluff. Here are 6 delicious edible Valentine’s gifts to make your Valentine’s tastier:
Butter cookies are soft, crumbly, and pure melt-in-the-mouth goodness! These cookies by Toujours come in round and heart shapes to suit your preferences. Decorated in shades of pretty pinks and white, they are a beautiful, romantic gesture to gift just about anyone you love. The best part about our Valentine Butter Cookies is that they are embellished with sweet little designs and pre-written messages like 'Happy Valentine's Day," 'Sweetie Pie, and 'xoxo'.
It’s no coincidence that strawberries are in season around the same time as Valentine’s! It pairs up elegantly with chocolate (dark, milk or white), to create a sensual explosion of flavours in our mouths. There are two ways you can put together a batch of fresh chocolate-dipped strawberries - in a box or as a bouquet. A pre-made box would include 9 beautifully decorated chocolate-dipped strawberries along with some roses. If you’re looking to make it a little more unique, a Strawberry Rose Bouquet of strawberries dipped in dark, milk, and white Belgian chocolate is the way to go enhanced with red roses & white carnations.
If you’re one to plan a romantic getaway for your loved one, then you know it can’t just end at that. The best way to spruce up your valentine’s day, is by putting together breakfast in bed for them, whether you order one in or make it all from scratch. Our Breakfast in Bed package puts together some of the world’s most romantic and delectable delicacies. Here’s what you get - 2 mini butter croissants, 2 mini pain au chocolat, 2 mini cheese croissants, chocolate-dipped strawberries (dark, milk, and white), a chocolate berry tart, chicken or veg Puff Pie and a bottle of Granola. There’s no better way to start the day than with this.
The best thing about cupcakes is how customisable they are. You can put together your favourite flavours, colours and sprinkles too. They can be as large as you want them to be or as bite-size as you prefer. You can add cute little sugar figurines or messages as well. Red Velvet Cupcakes, Rainbow Cupcakes, Vanilla-flavoured or chocolate-flavoured cupcakes with strawberry or chocolate-flavoured icing can be game-changers. Take a look at our Valentine’s Day themed cupcakes in Mumbai.
If cupcakes don’t make the cut for you, Valentine’s Day cake will be your knight in shining armour. You can either find pre-made cake designs or customise one according to your choice. Deck them with cute little messages, sugar figurines, and even pressed flowers to give them that edge. At Toujours, we have a minimalist Valentine’s Day Cake that’s decorated with buttercream and topped with goodies like meringue, macarons, chocolates and more. For those who love everything about Valentine’s day (think pink, teddy bears, flowers and chocolates), our Teddy Love Cake is for you as it encompasses all this and more!
Nothing swathes delicious edible Valentine’s gifts in elegance more than a well-made Mille-Feuille. As the name translates to English to mean ‘a thousand leaves’, this delicate French dessert is made from layers of puff pastry. Also known as Napoleon, it is made of three layers of puff pastry and 2 layers of pastry cream. It can be topped with whipped cream, or it may be dusted with icing sugar, cocoa, or even sliced nuts such as almonds. Glaze it with some delicious pink or chocolatey-y fondant or icing to sweep your partner off of their feet. At Toujours, Mumbai’s best bakery, our Mille-Feuille is made with the classic vanilla pastry cream (crème pâtissière) and also features layers of fresh strawberries for added taste and texture.
