Valentine's Day might be almost over but you could treat your special Valentine's to all year with perhaps a sweet gift from one of the sweetest sites online - Sucre!  Not only does Sucre offer an online site,  but they also offer a sweet little boutique located in New Orleans historic Garden District.  The founder (Joel Dondis) and the executive pastry chef (Tariq Hanna) partner together to make Sucre a huge success as well as  their customers very satisfied.

Take a look around their site and you will find delights that tease your tastebuds as they make your mouth yearn for a taste! Their unique selection of treats is nothing but ordinary,  in fact you will find tasty macaroons in many different flavors,  and some of the finest most unusual chocolates you have ever seen.   

Perfect for Valentine's Day Sucre offers a lovely selection of Valentine's Day gifts including a gift set filled with champagne and a box of assorted chocolates.  Sucre was kind enough to provide me with For the Love of Chocolate Collection and a Sucre King Cake!  I can't begin to tell you how excited I was to receive the items because first of all I am a huge fan of chocolate and second of all I look forward to the Mardi-Gras season every year because I love King Cakes!  

The chocolate arrived in a beautiful heart shaped box which can be reused to store trinkets in once it's empty.  Speaking of empty it wasn't long before the box was empty!  The box included 15 assorted chocolates including Sweet Red Raspberry,  Paris Tea,  and Malted Milk Chocolate.  I brought them to my grandmothers house to share with everyone and before I left they were all gone.  My favorite was the Malted Milk Chocolate while my grandmothers was the Sweet Red Raspberry.  

I also received a Sucre King Cake which I decided to take to a get together at my mothers because I knew my older brother would be there and he loves King Cakes just as much as I do.  The cake itself was so beautiful I almost didnt want to cut it,  but after thinking about how delicious it would taste it was sliced in no time.  In the middle of the cake was a baby which is spose to be inserted into the cake but this year we didnt eat it on Mardi-Gras so we didnt insert the baby.  Usually the person who gets the baby in their piece of cake has to hold the next Mardi-Gras celebration the following year.  

The cake was sparkling it was so pretty and when I say sparkling I mean actually sparkling.  Yep,  it contained edible sparkles and was colored with green and purple.  I knew if it tasted as good as it looked I was definitely in for a treat. The cake was very flaky with just the right amount of cream cheese in the center.  One piece soon turned into three pieces.  My brother and mother also equally enjoyed the cake.  And I was quite pleasently surprised with the affordable price tag that accompanied it which makes it affordable for just about anyone!  

BUY IT: You can purchase the 15 pc For the Love of Chocolate collection for $40.00 and the Sucre King Cake for $20.00.
