February 10, 2014 (Powerhomebiz.com) With Valentine’s Day around the corner, nothing says “Happy Valentine’s Day” more than a box a of the best chocolates and flowers. Every chocolate producing factory, confectionery or retail outlet in the city is already gearing for Valentine’s Day. Although, chocolate boxes have been the staple for Valentines for years but growing demand has also led couples to explore options with chocolates including Valentine connoting cakes. With cake shops in Mumbai springing up at every nook and corner, there is no denying that large valentine craving the city holds can be easily satiated.
Cakes are great expressions of love, passion, and sweetness that is Valentine. Whether one is far or around, nothing feels better than receiving a lovely looking and yummy tasting cake from a loved one. Cakes of various flavors, as they are available, are customized to fit the Valentine’s Day connotations with heart shaped cakes being the most common. Some flavors are altered to include strawberry flavors, whole strawberries coated with chocolates garnished on cakes, red color coated chocolate cakes, dark chocolate shavings coated; everything that represents and signifies Valentine’s Day appropriately.
Chocolate cakes are the most favored Valentine’s Day selections mainly because of its aphrodisiac properties. Also, there are very few people who loathe chocolate so, what best than to pamper your loved one with something they love and tastes delicious. Confections and cakes shops work double time to meet the overwhelming requirement on Valentine’s Day, From my experience, cake shops in Mumbai that do not offer delivery service set up shop to cater to special deliveries as gifts, mid night deliveries and stock up cakes and chocolates from a week in advance. Some even take international orders so as to cater to the NRI crowd and capture a chunk of the market.
While purchasing a cake from a cake shop is the easier and the safest way out, nothing says Valentine more than baking a cake or chocolate yourself. While many have tried and been successful, it is safe to say that it is not worth the risk considering the number of cake shops in Mumbai at least!
Before we sum this article, let’s not forget cup cakes, they are sweet small versions of love in every bite. The advantage of giving cupcakes is you can pack multiple flavors and shapes so as to safeguard your chances of missing any mark your lover may have set!
