Sweethearts and Sweet Treats

Unique Date Night Ideas for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day, means love is in the air. Whether you have a special someone to share the day  with or not you just feel like treating yourself, nothing says love like something sweet – we’re talking about cake jars. Surprise your date by packing away your jars until the opportune moment, try doing that with a whole cake or a pie. Cake jars are portable, tasty, and elegantly packaged, making them the ideal treat to bring along to your special date night spot. A unique gourmet dessert calls for a unique date night, so consider our top three picks for out of the ordinary romantic ideas.

1. Tent in the Backyard

Want to be alone with your Valentine and away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life? If escaping on a romantic getaway is out of your budget, consider a staycation.  A simple way to feel like you’re miles away without ever leaving home is to  pitch a tent in your backyard and have a romantic night under the stars. Have a couple cake jars waiting to add a dash or romantic flare and transform your ordinary backyard into a night you’ll always remember.

2. Bonfire on the Beach

If tents aren’t your thing and you’re more a fan of the ocean, take your date to the beach and snuggle up around a bonfire for two. Listen to the waves crash while you dig your toes in the sand, get warm by the fire, and enjoy the cake jars you packed. Just be sure to bring enough firewood.

3. Private Movie Theatre

Most of the country is still enduring the cold; so being outdoors on Valentine’s Day might not be for everyone. In this case, consider a simple indoor option and turn your room into a private movie theatre by spending the evening watching your favorite movies together. Avoid theater lines and don’t be limited to fake butter on your popcorn. Grab a cake jar and enjoy your  flick without the interruption of annoying movie goers.

Valentines Day Cake Jars

Rather than going to an expensive restaurant, the accessibility of these unique date locations means that you can surprise your date with a cake jar from POPCAKERY and have a simple, affordable, and memorable night that both of you will always remember. Share a gourmet dessert in your tent, by the fire, or in the comfort of your own movie theatre, and have a Valentine’s Day that’s both romantic and one-of-a-kind.

Despicable Me Cake Jars

We had the pleasure of creating custom cake jars for a Despicable Me birthday party! Filled with minions and Despicable Me flair, the dessert table that came together for this 4th birthday party featured our cake jars. We worked with the mom who put her daughter’s party together to create vibrant, colorful labels that included one of each of the characters from the movie.

Here are the cake jars with custom labels wishing Rosey a Happy Birthday!

Give ’em a Little Sugar

Sweeten Up this Valentine’s Day with these Date Night

valentine's dayNow that the holidays have passed, it’s time to enjoy time with that special someone, and start thinking of Valentine’s Day plans. Romantic getaways, cooking a special dinner, and lighting candles all have the makings of a romantic day. However, true romance is about making that special someone know they are special, and maybe getting a little sugar in return.

Show them you love them by giving ‘em a little sugar by taking advantage of our 20% off special, and indulge in more for less, without the guilt!

Whether you have a picnic planned, a special night in, or go for a classic dinner and a movie date, cake jars are sure to sweeten the night, so stock up on some sweet cake jars here and enter Promo Code LOVE.

If you’re running short on ideas, see if any of these ideas hits a sweet spot:

Plan a Picnic: Pack a lunch and hit the park with that special someone, and spend time out in nature enjoying one another’s company. Picnics are a great way to turn an ordinary lunch into a special treat. Don’t forget to pack some cake jars, for some sweet dessert. The cake jars are portable, and the mason jars they come in can be reused as a vase for flowers.

Plan a Special Night In: Order in from your favorite restaurant, kick your feet up and cuddle up with your sweetie this Valentine’s Day. Spending the night in will allow you to share a warm, intimate moment to cherish, especially if you stock up on some cake jars and indulge in some sweets together. For an added sparkle to your date night, why not light up sparklers together and splash the night with sparks?

Dinner and a Movie: This classic has been around because it is tried and true. Going out to eat at a favorite spot, and then cuddling during a Romantic Comedy may seem cheesy, but it is a great way to spend some quality time with that special someone. Sweeten the deal and surprise your sweetie with a cake jar at the end of the night, and you may just get some sweet sugar in return!

Your sweetheart will be more interested in spending some quality time than an extravagant gesture. You can still give your sweetheart a little sugar and make their day special with cake jars.
