valentines day

For our third collaboration as MK/BITA, we introduce our Valentine gift basket!  Each package includes one crepe paper peony and one dozen shortbread cookies.

Ji of Blooms in the Air carefully handcrafts each peony from high quality European crepe paper. It is amazing how much attention to detail put into each flower. Peonies come in two colors, ombré fuchsia and light blush pink.

The shortbread cookies come in two flavors, rosewater and chocolate chili. As with everything else Matchbox Kitchen, all ingredients are organic and thoughtfully sourced.

And, just for friends and blog readers, we are offering free shipping on orders placed by Sunday, January 25! No code necessary, just check out as normal. Click here to shop now.


In contrast to the White Velvet is the new Hot Chocolate cake. Inspired by Mexican hot chocolate, a rich chocolate cake is lightly seasoned with a touch of cinnamon and chili powder. Layered in between is chili caramel sauce, infused with three types of chilies for a spicy flavor and hint of smokiness. It is then finished off a slathering of silky whipped ganache buttercream and garnished with caramelized sugar shards sprinkled with red pepper flakes. Not for the faint of heart, as this a decadent semisweet chocolate flavor with a noticeable hint of spice.

As a Valentine’s treat, the Hot Chocolate cake is available in a petite 4 inches. To order, please visit our website.
