Sweet hearts for your sweetheart? Yes, please! Bake up your favorite Bundt cake recipes in this adorable mini cakelet pan from Nordic Ware ($40). We’re obsessed with the pan’s scalloped edges—and the little well on top is just begging to be filled with a spoonful of strawberry jam.
Your valentine will think of you every time they whip up a recipe in this limited-edition stand mixer ($500). This gorgeous appliance is painted a bright, rosy red—making it the perfect way to spruce up a stale kitchen. And small details, like the teeny-tiny hearts patterned on the trim band, set it apart from other KitchenAid mixers. Psst: There’s lots more to love about KitchenAid’s Queen of Hearts line.
As if pies weren’t pretty enough already! Whip up a true showstopper in this Emile Henry ruffled heart dish ($50). 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 ($8), a pop of pastel ($9) or a nod to your favorite Friends episode ($9), 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!
