If you ask us, the best Valentine's gifts are edible. Very few people have been known to turn up their nose at a pretty platter stacked full of warm cookies — or, better yet, a basket of cupcakes sprinkled and frosted to perfection. So, unless you have a sweet-phobic person on your love day list, the fresh-baked treat idea is a good one. Especially when said treats can be easily ordered from the best online bakeries and conveniently delivered to their doorstep.
Instead of going the Willy-Wonka route and turning your kitchen into a chocolate factory this year, switch off that stand mixer and enlist some help from the online pros. From Milk Bar to Levain and a bunch of other irresistible sweets in between, the 25 best online bakeries ahead will ship the goods directly to you or your crew — no confusing recipes, sweaty ovens, or dirty pans required.
