Valentine's Day is quickly approaching which means everything around you is either red, pink, or heart-shaped. Heart-shaped balloons, heart-shaped bibs for your baby, and even heart-shaped dinner plates. All that's left is the perfect heart-shaped dessert, but where can you get a heart-shaped cookie cake?
I know. It's like I'm psychic. Look, cookie cakes are the food of the angels, OK? There is nothing pretentious about them, they're easily adaptable for any holiday, and, good God, they are delicious. Cookies are pretty much a food group in my opinion, so when you make a giant one and cover it in luscious frosting? Ugh. Just marry me already, cookie cake creators.
And for Valentine's Day? It's a no-brainer of a dessert. Adults and children alike love the festive confection, and enjoying on in the shape of a heart makes it the sweetest addition to your dessert table. Bonus: It also makes for a great gift for your own valentine. My boyfriend is obsessed with this dessert, so I'm half-tempted to toss out gifts I bought and just ship him a giant, heart-shaped cookie cake.
Single on Valentine's Day? Fabulous. Now you don't have to share the festive, soft, chewy cookie cake of your dreams. Let Cupid's arrow hit you and order your heart-shaped cookie cake from one of these five places. Whether you're enjoying it with your love or on your own, it's the perfect way to celebrate Feb. 14.
