Be Still My Heart


Here’s a sophisticated way to show how smitten you are with your love muffin. These two exquisite heart-shaped cakes are as beautiful outside as they are delicious inside.

Above is our Dreamy Decadence Chocolate Cake. It features a kick of chile, which amplifies and richens the chocolate. Filled with indulgent layers of chocolate mousse, creme fraiche and chocolate covered hazelnuts, it’s glazed with iridescent gold dust!

Below is our Luscious Lady Finger & Lemon Cake. Light and sweet lady fingers embrace lush lemon mousse, sweet raspberry coulis, and tart cherry streusel. It’s topped with fresh raspberries and candied lemon.

We also have our beautifully decorated Valentines cookies. All items are available for pre-order by clicking here. You can also place an order at the register at Lovejoy Bakers West, 939 NW 10th Ave.

Love is in the…

Heart Shaped Oreo Housemade Lovejoy

…Chocolate.  These popular heart-shaped gems – our version of the oreo – are hard to resist. Vanilla bean butter cream is sandwiched between two chocolate butter cookies… then dipped in dark chocolate ganache and dusted with crystal sugar.

So, if chocolate is the key to your honey’s heart, these homemade “oreos” are sure to open the door… We are selling them individually, or by the 4-pack. Available now at the bakery.

Also available are Lovejoy’s “forget-them-not” shortbread cookies. These whimsical cookies are edible works of art.  Make sure to *remember* your sweetie this Valentine’s Day, and bring them heart-shaped cookies from Lovejoy Bakers!

Lovejoy Exclusive – Salted Caramel Shortbread Tart

Salted Caramel Torte with Chocolate Ganache

Decadent with a capital “D” is the best way to describe this salty + sweet + buttery beauty. Notice the three distinct layers, starting with a dense shortbread crust, a soft caramel center and dark chocolate ganache topping.

The crowning glory is a sprinkling of delicately-flavored sea salt.  These (magic) crystals intensify the dark chocolate and rich caramel flavors. Be prepared for every bite to elicit a silent reverie — or for some, an audible moan of delight.  Hmmmm… Valentine’s day is just around the corner.  Click here to pre-order.
