Valentine's Day Cakes - Excellent Valentine's Day Dessert Recipes

I love a beautiful cake/dessert!  Especially when it tastes delicious. We've found some real "show stoppers" here.  You eat with your eyes first!  We found lots of cakes using ruffled fondant (They are so pretty) and we found a lot of people making cakes using graduated layers or color, also called ombre.  We chose the pink ones for this post in honor of Valentine's Day.

This is my favorite of the bunch. A chocolate cake surrounded with pink and white chocolate covered pretzel sticks.  Being the huge fan of pink, as I am, this one just caught my eye. Yum! SOURCE

 I really like banners on cakes like this.   SOURCE
