Forget the jewelry. Forget the flowers. Forget the fancy dinners, the oysters, the caviar, the steak. Let's be real here: chocolate cake is the best part of Valentine's Day.

Chocolate cakes aren't moody, aren't choosy. They're gorgeous. They can be consumed wherever you desire: at a candlelit table, over a kitchen counter, with a glass of bubbly in a tight black dress, or in bed. And, being a baked good and not a person, they won't make anyone jealous.
