I don't know about you, but if I walk through the door on Valentines day with a heart shaped confection that looks like this, my husband will turn into the emoji with hearts for eyes. Behold, the Red Velvet Sweetheart Cake exclusively at Fresh AF Bakeshop:

Taryn Merrill via Facebook

Taryn Merrill attended Johnson and Whales where she earned her degree in Baking and Pastry Arts. Since graduating, she has made her way around New England as a cake decorator, pastry cook, and now she is an Adjunct Pastry Professor at Lakes Region Community College!

Fresh AF Bakeshop is located out of her home in Newmarket, New Hampshire but she has big dreams of renovating her barn on her property into a full scale baking and teaching kitchen. I haven't had the pleasure of meeting Taryn yet but I can just tell from her social media presence and website that she is a hard working and talented, go-getter and I love supporting local people like that.

BTW, there's more where that Red Velvet cake came from! She has a Chocolate Sweetheart Cake for those chocolate lovers out there, Cocoa bombs, and the treat that put Fresh AF on the map THE Strawberry Shortcake.

If you were planning on spoiling your sweetheart with treats on V-day, you might as well support a local business at the same time. Hit up Fresh AF Bakeshop on Facebook or check out their Valentines Day Presale on their website.
