Sweet hearts for your sweetheart? Yes, please! Bake up your favorite Bundt cake recipes in this adorable mini cakelet pan from Nordic Ware. We’re obsessed with the pan’s tiered edges—and the little well on top is just begging to be filled with a spoonful of strawberry jam.
Every baker needs a set of measuring cups and spoons! Get festive with this adorable heart-print set. They nest inside one another for easy storage, and the white-and-red design is subtle enough to display year-round. Use them to make one of our favorite Valentine’s Day desserts.
Your valentine will think of you every time they whip up a recipe (like one of these fun Valentine’s Day cupcakes!) in this cheery stand mixer. This gorgeous appliance is painted a bright, rosy red—making it the perfect way to spruce up a stale kitchen.
As if pies weren’t pretty enough already! Whip up a true showstopper in this Emile Henry ruffled heart dish. It’s available in both pink and red. And the plate’s 3.75-quart capacity makes it the perfect vessel for all kinds of bakes. (We’re particularly fond of this Macaroon Cherry Pie).
Whether you’re looking to embellish your V-Day sweets with some classic sprinkles , a pop of pastel or a nod to your favorite Friends episode, SprinklePop has you covered. This gourmet sprinkle company offers a variety of fun mixes decked out with jimmies, royal icing pieces, candy pearls and more. You can even customize your own mix!
Sure, candy is sweet. But a box of homemade treats will really show your valentine how much you care. Bake up a batch of cutouts with these cookie cutters dressed in seasonal shapes, including an X&O, heart with an arrow and sealed envelope. You can also decorate sugar cookies with kids for a fun afternoon project!
Whether you’re eager to whip up mini muffins or picture-perfect chocolates, this genius mat from Silpat is the perfect addition to your baking wares. It comes imprinted with 24 tiny heart molds, and the silicone surface ensures your sweets will never stick.
Creme brulee is one of our favorite Valentine’s Day desserts. And these oven-safe, heart-shaped cocottes make the decadent sweet even more special. We’re big fans of lemon creme brulee as well as this chocolate-raspberry version.
If you’re working with royal icing, these squeeze bottles will help you achieve bakery-level results. The small tips and easy-to-grip surface makes flooding cookies a breeze. (If you’re new to the process, get our step-by-step guide to decorating cookies with royal icing).
We love the versatility of these cute heart-shaped rings. While they’re designed for molding eggs and pancakes into a special breakfast, you could also use them to stamp out biscuits and scones, make powdered sugar designs atop a cake or shape soft fruits.
If you want to get really fancy, these cookie stencils are worth the effort. The “Love,” “XOXO” and “Be Mine” designs are all equally adorable. Try ’em airbrushed onto a cookie or sprinkled with powdered sugar on a cupcake. We love these other cookie decorating tools, too.
