the way to my heart is certainly through baked goods. I could frankly careless about a dozen roses. (I prefer to treat myself regularly with the $3.99 bouquets at trader joe’s). and I don’t feel loved when given a box of chocolate, each mysteriously filled. I don’t want to gamble when putting a piece of chocolate into my mouth. some are delicious, but the others will remain half eaten in the heart-shaped box. (am I right?). when it comes to cupcakes, if you find a place you love (that does it right) ..you cannot go wrong. and for me, that’s scratch cupcakery! they have rotating flavors daily + new flavors each month. but regardless, you cannot go wrong. they’re all magically delicious ..

on our last trip to scratch, the husband and I hand-picked the hot cocoa + cinnamon roll flavored cupcakes. they were both picture perfect + incredibly delicious. (it’s impressive I got photos before they were devoured). so with the day of love rapidly approaching ..when you’re contemplating what hints to drop to your loved ones, I’d suggest the cupcake route. it’s also a great idea for you to surprise your loved ones, co-workers, and friends. who can say no to a good cupcake?
(*side note: if you’re in the state of iowa, find your way to a scratch! you won’t be disappointed).
