Conversation heart cakes from Baker & Banker.
I really, truly thought I was done writing about Valentine’s Day, but here are a few more things for your sugar radar: ~BAKER & BANKER~ are up to no good in the bakery, making raspberry Linzer heart sandwich cookies, strawberry Champagne cupcakes, red hot red velvet cupcakes (red hot candies are added into the batter), and conversation heart cakes. And… they’re also introducing chocolate-covered bacon, along with some other treats.
~TELL TALE PRESERVE COMPANY~ has created the Tell Tale Heart, a collection of four signature treats all wrapped in a reusable, custom-made black and white Japanese furoshiki, containing passionfruit-olive oil curd, chocolate brioche, dark chocolate-passionfruit bon bons, and coffee-passion caramels. There is a limited quantity, and you can order them on the Tell Tale website to pick up or ship anywhere in the country ($75 for pick up and $87 to ship).
On Sunday February 13th, SFoodie is hosting the ~ONE LOVE BAKE SALE~ at La Victoria Bakery in the Mission, with local pastry shops donating baked goods to benefit the San Francisco City Clinic (which offers reproductive and sexual health services to everyone and anyone in SF). The lineup includes: Baker & Banker Bakery, Goody Goodie, Knead Patisserie, Mission Minis, Pinkie’s Bakery, Sandbox Bakery, Sweet Adeline Bakeshop, and Tell Tale Preserve Co. Come by from 12pm-4pm to pick up some sweets (cash only!), and 100 percent of sales will go to the City Clinic. (So don’t be surprised if you see a big pile of sample condoms to take home with your cupcakes and cookies.) La Victoria, 2937 24th St. at Alabama.
