Valentine’s Day Gifts & Desserts at Zingerman’s Bakehouse

  • Heart cookies – Heart-shaped butter cookies with a hint of fresh citrus zest, adorably decorated with fresh vanilla fondant. Individually bagged, these cookies make great little gifts for every Valentine on the list! Available 2/1-2/14.
  • Valentine’s Day Roses Cake – This sweet and luscious looking cake is completely covered in hand-piped pink butter cream rosettes and a sprinkle of sparkle. Inside are tempting layers of buttermilk chocolate cake and fresh strawberry butter cream. Available all month long!
  • Coconut Cosmic Cakes – Our cosmic cakes send most everyone over the moon with one bite and have taken the Bakehouse by storm from the start. We take two thin chocolate cake layers, sandwich them with very special butter cream fillings, and bathe them in crisp, intense dark chocolate. You can get vanilla or raspberry fillings everyday, but for these two days only we’re making a creamy coconut butter cream filling, made with Italian coconut paste. Available 2/13 & 2/14.
  • Chocolate Dipped Palmiers – Our crispy palmiers are made from our own hand-layered butter puff pastry. Here they take a little dip in intense dark chocolate. Available 2/13 & 2/14.
  • Chocolate Cherry bread – This bread is a chocolate lover’s fantasy come true–the best Belgian and French chocolates and dozens of Michigan dried cherries. A few minutes in the oven and the chocolate chunks begin melting and the aroma of cocoa fills the air. Available 2/13 & 2/14.
