There are fleeting moments and moments that last a lifetime. Whether it’s your first date or first anniversary, the precious time spent together are the experiences that make life worth living for. Of the major events that one experiences, a proposal is arguably one of the most important.
Now, we know planning a proposal can be a daunting task, especially given the need to sweep them off their feet, and there can be many ways to go about it, whether you choose to have it in a public area or in a private setting.
But fret not, we’ve got you covered! Follow along as we explore several ways to plan the perfect proposal with our romantic valentines cakes.
For our first tip, we recommend that you have a game plan for that special day. While spontaneity can be novel, a step by step action plan could help your proposal run without a hitch.
Yes, it’s likely that you’ll be overwhelmed by nerves and jitters during the day of the proposal; an overall itinerary to fall back on if you find yourself flustered during the day will help you back on your feet.
Your proposal can also be made memorable by tapping into shared interests, with themes you both enjoy. You could also take inspiration from your shared experiences, such as your first date or where you spent your first anniversary.
You could go as far as booking an entire location or planning a whole trip; If you can envision it and have the means to achieve it, by all means, breathe it to life. A proposal is a once-in-a-lifetime moment that will mark the beginning of a life spent together. So why not make it memorable.
Lean in to your partners’ interest when planning your proposal. An event utilising their current preferences could help give them an extra surprise when you get down on one knee.
For example, if they enjoy a beach, then plan a cute beach proposal. Remember to stock up on sunscreen and get those flipflops out. Likewise, if they are comfortable in public and in crowds; you should look to plan a nice cosy private occasion if they are more introverted in nature.
At the end of the day, your partner comes first when making plans, and you should know best as to what they are most comfortable with. Make your proposal plans with that in mind.
Consider inviting friends and family to witness the proposal. This could take a lot more scheduling to pull off but your difficulties in achieving it could be offset by an amazing payday. With the proposal done among loved ones, you obtain the chance to celebrate the event surrounded by familiar smiling faces.
If you wish to keep your proposal private, try getting some help decorating your living room for a comfortable proposal event. A day spent decorating could be well worth the effort especially if it makes their heart flutter. Better yet, if you can afford it, go big and reserve a whole restaurant for a private and lavish proposal.

Nothing exemplifies romance more than strawberries dipped in oozing chocolate. With our Choc & Berries Drip Cake, tap into some unfiltered visions of romance as you present the cake during your proposal event.
This is a simple round cake, topped with our signature buttercream and covered with a chocolate-drip design. On top, there is a selection of seasonal berries, arranged carefully to fill out the top of the cake. It is then finished with a sprinkling of icing sugar, completing its contrasting dark topping with the white body of the cake, giving it a yin and yang symphony.

The groundwork is done, you have the entire day planned down to the nano second. While that’s all well and good, it doesn’t hurt to have backup plans, such as what to do when it rains on the day of your proposal.
Approach your proposal with sincerity, speak from your heart. It does not matter if you stutter or get the words wrong. Your words may fail, but what matters most is that you get that ring out, go on one knee and make your promise to start a beautiful union.
