Baked sweets for sweethearts

Want to give your Valentine a cookie with some heart? Try the elaborately decorated confections from the Old Waverly Tea Room's Donna Beth Joy Shapiro. Big cookies cost about $10, packages of four small ones are about $8. They can be personalized, or Shapiro can order custom-made cutters in almost any shape. The cookies are available at the tea room, 414 E. 31st St., (410) 889-7112, or at Eddie's Market, 3117 St. Paul St., (410) 889-1558.

If you're baking something for your sweetheart this Valentine season, think about using fruit snack sheets to make decorations. The flexible, chewy fruit can be tied in a bow, wrapped around a cupcake or cut into shapes such as hearts or cupids. (A tip from Baker's Chocolate.)

Godiva diamonds

A gift of chocolate could come with a bit of "ice" this year -- if

it's from the "Love in Bloom" collection from Godiva. The company has hidden three one-carat diamond solitaire rings, valued at $10,000 each, among the chocolates. Prices in the collection start at $18.

Romance at sea

The Admiral Fell Inn's "Aphrodisiac's Valentine Getaway" package includes an overnight stay, a three-course meal at Sea Witch seafood restaurant, continental breakfast and free parking. Cost is $195 per couple. For information or reservations, call (410) 522-7377 or (800) 292-4667.
