It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without a helping hand from the wonderful bakers at Crosstown. It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without me writing a blog about Valentine’s Day gifts.
For those of you unfamiliar with the brand, it’s a scratch bakery in London. Crosstown specialises in sourdough doughnuts, small batch ice cream, homemade cookies, extraordinary chocolate and speciality coffee.
This year they’ve perfected a series of dough bites sure to make you go weak at the knees. Ingredients used in this year’s Valentine’s bites include chocolate, strawberries, glitter and fresh petals.
