Have you been strolling 125th Street and peeped a small sweets shop on the south side between Lenox and Fifth avenues? It is called Piece of Velvet (@PieceofVelvet, 17 W. 125th St., 646-863-2969, www.pieceofvelvet.com) and owner Michael Morgan wants to give AmNewsFOOD readers the sweetest of Valentine’s Day with two special offers.

The first offer is a contest. Piece of Velvet would like to learn how you met your special someone who sent a love arrow through your heart. Send your story (200 words max) to AmNewsFOOD@SCHOPnyc.com no later than Friday, Feb. 10. Five winners will receive a personalized signature Valentine’s Day cake to be picked up at the store Feb. 14.

If writing is not your thing, Piece of Velvet is offering a special 20 percent off half a dozen Valentine’s Day cupcakes, when available through Valentine’s Day (call for details). This way you can spread that love around and not drop a crumb!
