How the Obamas Are Spending Valentine's Day

Posted on

The White House already has a rose garden, so President Obama took care of the sweet-tooth portion of Valentine’s Day earlier this week – with a special cake for First Lady Michelle, PEOPLE has learned.

Ten days before Valentine’s Day – Feb. 4 – the first husband placed his order for the Triple Chocolate Enrobed Brownie Cake from Bake Me a Wish! – which made news this week for its Operation: Birthday Cake, permitting members of the public to donate birthday cakes for delivery to American military personnel overseas.

As for what Michelle Obama received this past Tuesday – the early arrival was for security reasons, a Bake Me a Wish! spokesperson tells PEOPLE – the first family will enjoy what the New York-based bakery’s Web site describes as a “moist & fudgy brownie cake enrobed in rich chocolate, then completely blanketed with a shower of dark chocolate shaves.”

It’s topped by “milk and dark chocolate glazes drizzled all over and [a] Belgian chocolate plaque” that, on the Obamas’ cake, reads, “I love you.” And this stimulus package sells for just under $40.
