You’ve devoured their cakes, marvelled at their mastery and even sometimes been allowed to lick the bowl. This Valentine’s Day it’s time to show some love to your cake decorating other half.
But romance isn’t always easy. Luckily we’ve compiled a list of ten ways you can show your beloved cakey exactly how much they mean to you.
This Valentines Day…
1. Get them something sparkly
We love the Valentine’s Day range from Cake Stuff. Surprise your other half with some wee thoughtful pressies… Valentine’s themed, of course!
2. Tell them they’re great
Ok, so they should already have guessed that they’re pretty great due to the rate at which you scoff down their lovely cakes. But sometimes it’s actually nice to hear it out loud. A little bit of appreciation goes a long way.
3. Give them space
Sometimes things don’t always go a cakey’s way, and the red mist starts to appear. Also know as Cake Rage. Cake Rage is characterised by huffing, stomping and muttering and other similar signals to LEAVE WELL ALONE. If your beau is busy making a three tier red velvet wedding cake in the kitchen, don’t just pop in to make a cheese sandwich. Give them the space they need to concentrate on the job at hand.
4. Support them
After the LEAVE WELL ALONE phase comes the Everything’s Going To Be OK phase. A little cuddle and a reminder that it takes practise to get better will have your cakey feeling all warm and fluffy inside once more.
5. Spoil them rotten
If you’re looking for a way to put a great big smile all over a cake decorator’s face, then get them an annual membership with us. They can watch hundreds of online tutorials with Paul and our fabulous guest tutors guiding them every step of the way. Plus – more cake for you. That’s win-win, right?
6. Lend a helping hand
Whether the cake decorator in your life is an amateur or professional, a little help with the tidy up will not go unnoticed. Little romantic gestures can be just as good as big extravagant displays of affection.
7. Make them a cake
Ready for a challenge? Knock their socks off by surprising them with a cake made by your own fair hands. Browse our selection of individual tutorials, where Paul will guide you every step of the way in creating an impressive cake.
8. Bake together
If you’re not quite ready to make a cake alone, why not set aside a little time for baking together? Chances are they’ll love to share their hobby with you, and few things are more romantic than your other half wanting to share in your passion.
9. Encourage their dreams
If your partner has always dreamed of starting their own business, it’s time to set them on that road to success. Few things are more satisfying than doing what you love every day. Treat them to a Pro membership and help them build the business confidence they need to succeed.
10. Inspire them
Take them on an adventure. Cake inspiration lies around every corner and can be found in the most unexpected of places. The beach, a museum, the zoo – get their imagination fired up!
And remember… Valentine’s Day may only come once a year, but love lasts all year round. Awwwwwwwwww!
