Valentine’s Day, boon to florists, bars, and enterprising restaurants, offers dessert lovers a holiday of their own. Bakeries are not shy about cashing in on the cupcake craze, and Valentine’s Day brings a whole slew of options. Pick up a box of edible roses from Kumquat Cupcakery’s pop-up in Greenpoint, or send a love letter baked by Magnolia (ask for them at the new Dubai location!). Like flowers, desserts won’t last forever, but they will endure a gym workout.
