I am IN love with the main font that you use for the titles on your page. Am I allowed to ask the name of this font or where you got it?

What a beautiful mix of shapes, shades, textures and designs—almost too beautiful to eat! All are so pretty for Valentine's Day... and maybe the gold hearts would make a lovely bridal shower treat as well? I'm definitely bookmarking this... and maybe picking up something sweet tomorrow to cure the craving :)
