Love sometimes comes in small and sweet packages.
Purely Sweet Bakery, a Beavercreek business that specializes in gluten-free, vegan, paleo and keto products, has unveiled Mini Cakes for Two just in time for Valentine’s Day.
“They are definitely a very intimate, perfect dessert for two people,” Dawn Vaflor, the founder of the bakery said. “When I first made them, I envisioned a romantic evening for two.”
The petite cakes, which are gluten-free and vegan, are four inches high and four inches in diameter, and cost $15.
They come in a variety of flavors, including vanilla decorated with naturally dyed sprinkles, Dutch chocolate, carrot cake with cream cheese icing and a chocolate buckeye cake topped with peanut butter frosting.
A red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting and a chocolate cake with strawberries layered in the middle will also be available for the upcoming romantic holiday.
Mini Cakes & Cream, made with a layer of vegan ice cream in a variety of flavors, are also available for $20.
The small cakes will be available year-round for birthdays or other special occasions.
While the baked goods are an option for people with dietary restrictions, anyone with a sweet tooth will enjoy them. In fact, demand has been so high for Vaflor’s products she is looking for bakers to add to her staff.
“We hear all the time, ‘I never would have known this was gluten free or vegan because it tastes so good,’” she said.
For Valentine’s Day, the bakery is also selling a Little Valentine Mini Box containing two geometric-shaped red velvet cake truffles and two heart-shaped shortbread cookies covered in marbled royal icing. The box — gluten-free and vegan — is $15.
A box of four heart-shaped chocolate ganache truffles — also gluten-free and vegan — covered in chocolate and decorated with gold luster dust and sprinkles will also be available for $5.
Later this week, vegan and keto chocolate-dipped strawberries — five for $6 — will also be available.
The Mini Cakes for Two and Valentine’s Day products can be found at the Purely Sweet Bakery site, 3375 Dayton-Xenia Road in Beavercreek.
The bakery shares space with the Coffee Hub, where the baked goods are sold. The hours for the Coffee Hub are Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Saturday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
A variety of baked goods from Purely Sweet Bakery, including cookies, breads, donuts, cinnamon rolls and cupcakes, can be found at grocery stores and other retailers across the Dayton and Cincinnati area.
They are at all three Dorothy Lane Market stores, Jungle Jim’s in northern Cincinnati, local coffee shops including Wholly Grounds in Dayton, Coffee Hub in Xenia and Beavercreek, Grounds for Pleasure in Tipp City and Platform Coffee House in Washington Court House.
