Start a new tradition this Valentine's Day

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Forget the candy and flowers, one baker suggests starting a new tradition and pick up some cupcakes.

Kerry O 'Conner's Cake Design is a new bakery in downtown Savannah that is dishing up red velvet cupcakes, heart shaped toppings and other tasty flavors to the love hungry Valentines.

Valentine's Day is traditionally a big sales day for florists and restaurants, but with the holiday falling on a Monday, O 'Conner is hoping to snag those last minute Valentine's Day shoppers as they walk around downtown.

"I am definitely expecting a lot of last minute people, especially the boys," said owner Kerry O'Conner. "They can be a little more last minute coming in and wanting to grab something real quick. I think cupcakes are a great treat for Valentine's Day."

O'Conner says she plans on keeping her shop stocked with an assortment of Valentine's Day cupcakes for sweet-toothed valentines.
