Forget about the roses and choccies this year; give us cake any day and we’ll be happy campers. Here are three pretty (and delicious) Valentine’s Day cakes from one of our favourite bakeries, Lucia Cakes.
#1. Red Velvet Cake (from $35)
You won’t go wrong with the classic, timeless, red velvet flavour of this elegant number. It features light and moist chocolate vanilla sponge cakes sandwiched between lusciously smooth vanilla-bean cream-cheese frosting.
#2. Ombre Berry Cheesecake (from $30)
For something on the lighter end, this eggless and non-baked cake is bound to satisfy. Made without artificial colours, the ombre effect is achieved using different concentrations of raspberries in each layer, and the mousse-like, cheesecake texture makes it a winner.
#3. Brownies (from $35)
We can’t rave enough about these fudgy, addictive morsels! Go for the salted dark chocolate option, which consists of hand harvested flakes of sea salt to balance out the richness, or get the mixed box, which gets you four flavours – triple chocolate, chocolate walnut, salted dark chocolate and Oreo
