Put the Chinese New Year cookies on hold and bring out the cakes for Valentine’s Day. If you don’t want to get caught in the potentially massive weekend crowd now that dine-ins are allowed, solidify your Valentine’s-at-home plans and order these cakes to express your affection instead.
Jaslyn’s popular Victoria Sponge and Lemon Curd cakes are getting a glow-up this Valentine’s Day. Carved into a petite heart shape and decorated with crystallised and fresh rose petals, the limited cakes come with a hand-stamped “I Love You!” tag — overt affection done right. Packaged in clear boxes tied with grosgrain ribbon, the cakes can be collected ahead of the weekend rush on Feb 10 and 11. Alternatively, have it delivered to your recipient for an early V-day surprise.
