Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance can you make Valentine’s desserts?

Generally, you can prepare most Valentine’s desserts 3 days in advance. Some things, like pie crusts, are possible to make weeks in advance and freeze. It’s best to err on the side of caution and give your loved one something as fresh as possible! It is useful to prepare by making sure you have enough of each ingredient, designating bakeware and unique plating possibilities, and making toppings if needed. That way the desserts are easier to assemble, prepare, and present on Valentine’s Day.

How to select Valentine’s Day desserts?

I like to think about the dinner as a balance. If you’re going with a heavy dinner, consider a citrus dessert to end the meal. Be sure you’re considering your loved one’s favorite things and dietary restrictions! A little detail like their preferred fruit on top will really go a long way. If you’re also making dinner, don’t choose something too complicated. If you are only preparing dessert, I say go all in! It’s also possible to make something together with your partner, so consider what could be fun to do as a team. I’d suggest that you do a test run in advance so there isn’t any stress to disturb the romance!

Which Valentine’s desserts hold up best in the heat?

Lighting a lot of candles or have the heat turned up in your home? If you’re nervous about a melty, messy situation, consider staying away from desserts that don’t have a strong structure. This would include those with large amounts of chocolate or whipped dairy products (like whipped cream or buttercream). If you’re really worried about the heat, it could be good to stick with desserts that are served in goblets. This encompasses trifles, mousses, and puddings. Or, you could make desserts that you know will hold their form, such as cookies, unfrosted cakes, and galettes. You could also wait to add things like buttercream until the end. This will allow the dessert to stay chilled for as long as possible!
