Speakeasy Sweets will also be creating Valentine’s Day gift assortments that will include the aforementioned treats, along with other Cupid-inspired gifts like coffee mugs and stuffed animals. As an added bonus, if the bakery receives the special molds and cookie cutters in time, Valentine’s Day adult-themed items might also appear on the menu.

The rebranding of Thyme After Thyme Gourmet, owned and operated by Aimee Plesa, was designed to cater to one of Plesa’s greatest passions: crafting alcoholic treats for the masses. Now, Speakeasy Sweets offers an assortment of booze-inspired sweet treats.
