Last week, we brought you a list of Valentine dessert ideas to entice your honey with. If you wanted even more options, you greedy monkey, we've come up with more -- red-bottom cheesecake cups, tuxedo strawberries and really hearty cupcakes to name a few.

Instead of the usual chocolates in a heart-shaped box, why not mini cupcakes? Studio City's Big Sugar Bakeshop has assorted mini cupcakes in a heart-shaped gift box ($7 for four, $32 for 20). Or for after your V-Day dinner dessert, present a pie for two, baked in a heart-shaped ceramic dish ($10). Choose from the following flavors: chocolate malted, tequila lime, banana pudding or apple raspberry.

Former Grace pastry chef Elizabeth Belkin and biz partner Lisa Olin have got plenty of sweets for you and baby boo to drool over at their online bakery, Cake Monkey. Put your orders in for the heart-shaped chocolate locket cookies filled with caramel and fleur de sel ($25 a box). Or partake of the vibrant raspberry red velvet cakewich -- red velvet cake sandwich filled with raspberry swirled vanilla frosting and coated in bittersweet chocolate ($3.75).
