Valentine's Day Treats

I'm trying to find where I can find the yummiest valentine's day treats -- special cookies, cupcakes, etc. to bring home for our dessert. Any suggestions on best bakeries, especially in the Midtown area, would be greatly appreciated!

    These look pretty good to me and Bouchon isn't too far if you happen to be more in Midtown West than East.

      I just noticed on the Wafels & Dinges website that they're doing a Valentine's Day heart shaped waffle that looks AMAZING! I don't know if they'll be selling it at their trucks that day, but they listed an email address for inquiries about it (ellen@wafelsanddinges.com). It's pricey, though, at $45. Maybe that includes delivery? Either way, it looks bigger than their normal waffles!

        i didn't see anything on their website about it! $45 is expensive for a waffle, though. with delivery, it may be worth it ...

          It's not on their website for some reason, but it is on their Facebook page. Strange. I agree that $45 is steep when normally it's around $7 for a Brussels or Liege with the Wafel of Massive Deliciousness (every topping you could want). But I'm guessing it's a lot bigger? If it doesn't include delivery it's not worth it in my opinion.
