It’s the season of L-O-V-E! And here at G&F, we believe the best way to celebrate your sweetheart—or sweethearts!—is with some scrumptious sweets. We enlisted the help of the Nicole Triebe, a.k.a the WINDY CITY DINNER FAIRY, to bake up some magic and transform a basic batch of cupcakes into a work of heart for Valentine’s Day. Instead of over-the-top kitsch, Nicole teaches us a little bit of cake art with a beautiful hydrangea cupcake bouquet.
This Valentine-themed masterpiece is a perfect example of Nicole’s knack for edible art. From working as a paralegal to studying pâtisserie arts, Nicole realized that her true passion was in the creation of beautiful cakes.

We guarantee you’ll fall even more in love with her Instagram, full of colorful cakes and buttercream dreams! READ MORE >>
