Do something different for your next date with your significant other...instead of going out, actually make dessert! And make it more interesting - forget about using bowls, plates or fine china. Instead, make dessert simple and elegant by using wine glasses instead. Whether you plan to cook or go out for dinner and a movie, you can end the night with dessert at home enjoying a personalized dessert in your favorite wine glasses.
Wine glass desserts can be a fun date idea in itself, especially for wine connoisseurs and/or couples who love cooking together. You probably already have a cabinet full of wine glasses as it is, so all you need is a few sweet ingredients. You and your partner can create wine glass desserts for each other using each other’s favorite flavors - it's a great way to bond!
