Now this is a great idea if you're on the "decoratively challenged" side (no judgment, it's not easy to make food cross the boundary between nice and spectacular).
These great cakes from Brys + Edgewood are actually kits and designed for the novice to make fantastic and beautiful cakes.
All the kits include everything you need to make the cake, including the pre-colored fondant, cake mix, disposable paper baking molds and instructions.
And for those of you guys still looking for a neat date idea...try baking! Think about it - you get to stay at home, you get to be the "creative genius" for the day, and you get to be around your woman for several hours!
And by the way - there's a special running on Gilt Taste through February 14th!
