baked by susan
379 S Riverside Ave, Croton on Hudson; 914,862.0874
We dare you to take more than one bite of this decadent dessert. Baked By Susan also makes the cutest gift for the kids (or kids at heart) in your life.
575 Main Street, Armonk; 914.273.3612
Nothing says “spread love” like an expertly decorated sugar cookie almost too pretty to eat. But trust us, that feeling won’t last long and pretty soon all you’ll be leaving behind are crumbs and glitter remnants.
Boleria Brazilian Bakery
362 Mamaroneck Avenue, Mamaroneck; 914.630.0100
For a sensual treat that will leave a lasting impression, the Brazilian brigadeiro should be your go-to. Made with a condensed milk base and sold in a variety of flavors, our favorite is dark chocolate. Looking to make a bigger splash? The bakery is also filling chocolate shells with passion fruit, dulce de leche, and chocolate mousse.
by the way bakery
574 Warburton Ave, Hastings-On-Hudson; 914.478.0555
This dairy-free and gluten-free haven has a plethora of treats to offer this holiday season, from truffle cake to heart-shaped sugar cookies. The headliner that has us hyped for 14the it’s the whoopie pie, a moist cake with chocolate goodness in every bite and dressed in pink for the occasion.
sweetheart gift box
4668 Boston Post Rd, Pelham; 914.222.0704
Near, far, wherever they are, these ultimate treat boxes can make anyone feel the love. Available at the bakery and for delivery, the assortment of a chocolate-covered brownie heart, a rice krispie love letter, chocolate-covered Oreo lips, and two chocolate-covered pretzel rods far outweighs any stale sampling of Supermarket. Also, how adorable is he?
Cherry Pie Marry Me
22 Purdy Ave, Rye; 914.305.3174
While not inherently Valentine’s Day, this cake (as the name implies) might cause a spontaneous proposal. Is there anything more romantic?
nothing and everything

There’s no shortage of adorable treats at The Snackery. From love cakes to little love monster treats, you’ll forget about Valentine’s Day and feel more like a kid in a candy store at this bakery. Don’t forget to buy something for yourself: self love is important, wink wink.
Conversation Hearts Cake
380 Main Street #1821, Armonk; 914.273.4777
Tell them how you really feel this Valentine’s Day with a personalized message on this Instagram-worthy cake. Throw a Galentine’s Day instead? The bakery is also making man-made squashed cakes (ours is Harry Styles, no judging).
