You always hurt the one you love.
To wit: the last-minute DIY edible underwear that you gave your Valentine as a token of your love. (Macaroni? Gross.)
This year, give your schmoopie something truly smashing: a chocolate pinata cake from Serenade Chocolatier. The local confectioner’s tricking out its hollow dark or milk chocolate cakes for Cupid with white chocolate and clever sayings like “Don’t Break My Heart.”
Of course, the cakes (available in small and large sizes) are filled with the usual goodies — chocolate-covered nuts, caramel, pralines — but there are a few special chocolate hearts thrown into the mix, too.
Each one comes with its own mallet, so your S.O. can focus on hitting the cake.
And not you.
Available at Serenade Chocolatier, 5 Harvard Square, Brookline (617-739-0795); South Station (617-261-9941). To see cakes, go to serenadechocolatier.com. Orders must be placed by February 8.
