After just two months in business, Simple Sugar Bakery has gained a loyal following for its cupcakes, cookies, and custom birthday cakes. The Wash Park spot operates inside Basil Doc’s, and it’s the dream come true of three passionate home-bakers who wanted to make baked goods free of preservatives and additives.

This month, the shop’s cake lollies—little balls of cake on six-inch lollipop sticks held together with frosting, liqueur, or white or dark chocolate—are getting all the attention. Order a bouquet of one dozen (you choose the cake and frosting), or combine five lollies with a bouquet of flowers from nearby Flower Power for $50. Either way, your sweetie will be pleased.

Tip: To meet the Valentine’s Day deadline, orders must be placed by Friday, February 12.
