Denial may hold true for most cases, but Start2Bake, our sister-brand, can vouch for the fact that food and love are two sides of the same coin. Even for those of us who cannot cook at gunpoint, we have thought of picking up the pretty baking bowl to whip-up an oozy chocolate cake for our lovers. This may sound corny but can you deny it? We don't think so. Worry no more, because we have these amazing classes lined up just for you to go crazy in your kitchen with the ladles, mixes, ganache and whatever you may please to make the most out of the month of love.
Here's a closer look at the classes:
