Tricia and Keith Clemons opened BabyCakes Cupcakes in Lexington with one dream in mind: To do what they love each and every day. Because the Clemons make their cupcakes with love, BabyCakes make the perfect treat for your sweetheart.

Valentine’s Day is always crazy at the shop, Tricia said. So, for the past five years, working side by side at BabyCakes has been the Clemons’ Valentine’s Day tradition. “My husband and I celebrate the day by icing as many cupcakes as possible and then toasting with a glass of wine for surviving another Heart Day,” Tricia said.

“We tend to be a bit cheesy regarding our gifts,” Tricia said before ‘fessing up that, really, she’s the cheesy one. “I bought him a stuffed monkey years ago that dances and sings ‘Wild Thing.’ Said monkey has a tendency of making an appearance every Valentine’sDay since that fateful purchase, singing and doing his jig in random locations throughout our house, reminding my husband that he indeed ‘makes my heart sing.'”

Think outside the box of chocolates this Valentine’s Day and pick up a bouquet of BabyCakes for your sweetheart. Donia’s husband, Greg, told her to order a dozen of her favorite BabyCakes flavors for her birthday and Donia couldn’t wait to pick them up this past weekend.  She couldn’t wait to get them home before digging in, either! { Donia’s favorite BabyCakes flavors! }

BabyCakes’ most-popular Valentine’s cupcakes tend to be anything infused with pink and red, and Tricia sent over three of BabyCakes’ top Valentine’s flavors.

1 { SUMMERTIME }  Strawberry cupcake topped with strawberry buttercream icing. Yes, please.

2 { SOUTHERN BELLE }  Red. Velvet. Need we say more?

3 { SWEET & SASSY REDHEADS } White chocolate and raspberry cupcake of amazingness.
