It’s Valentine’s Day week, and this sweet season isn’t complete without indulging in something sugary or covered in chocolate (or both!). Fortunately, there are many independent bakers in and around Indianapolis who are creating Valentine’s Day concoctions for us to enjoy, as well as custom-made treats all year long. From kid-favorite hot cocoa bombs and cake pops, to decorated sugar cookies and desserts, these sweet treats are only a click away and can be ordered online from the bakers’ Instagram account, Facebook page or website. If you want to shop local this Valentine’s Day — and every day! — then check out these eight local bakers.
