Making desserts is something I enjoy doing when I have time. I see it as a way of spoiling the people in my life and showing them I am thinking about them. It is also a lot of fun to invite others to help me bake. That’s why I thought a date night centered around baking might be a fun idea.
I invited Laurel Avery on to share with us a few of her date night tips. Here’s what she has to say-
There’s nothing quite like baking a cake with your spouse to make romance blossom. Here’s how to make an evening out of baking with your partner.
Chose the Right Recipe and Gather Supplies
Pick a recipe that will serve you well for your date night. If you want to be adventurous and learn something new together, then go with a recipe you’ve never tried. If you want to know for sure you’re going to love the dessert, then go with an old standby. You might even want to have a bake off where you both make something different.

Get Fancy With Decorating
