A dessert never goes out of fashion, especially when the day love is around the corner.
So, the month of love is here, and with Valentine’s Day just a week away, there’s no reason romance shouldn’t be in the air. While some of us may think it is overrated, let’s be honest that expressing love to someone can never be overrated no matter how grand or small the gesture might be. If you ask me, there is perhaps nothing more caring and significant than showing your special someone your love by cooking for them.
The thought and efforts that go into creating something beautiful with your very own hands are unmatched. Be it a full-fledged meal or just a cute little cupcake, anything will do the trick as long as you do it. Like that, a dessert never goes out of fashion, especially when the day love is around the corner.
