After a while, you would realise that you and your partner have done possibly everything a couple could on dates in Singapore. You could always go back and revisit the places you’ve been to but where’s the fun in that? Heat things up in the kitchen and unleash the domestic gods and goddesses in you as you battle each other to baking the better French pastry. Or take cues from the romantic movies you’ve seen before and frost a cake together. Sounds like so much fun already doesn’t it?
Baking is a piece of cake once you’ve tried your hand at it and here are 6 baking classes for couples that can prove that statement best. You will never have to settle on a cake mix box anymore after this!
