You’ve heard the old adage that the path to a man’s heart is through his stomach. A couple of teenaged boys turned that idea on its head by creating custom food gifts to show their prom dates that that they care.
The Watertown Daily News of New York reported this summer that two local teens asked out their prom dates with custom-made desserts. And they went a bit further than ordering cookies or bite-size Magic Morsels in our heartfelt Thinking of You band.
William Serota formed cookie dough into the shape of the characters: P-R-O-M-?. When the cookies were done baking, he sent his date Carly Sullivan to the kitchen to check on them. Fortunately, she said yes.
Meanwhile, their classmate Jake Turck ordered Chinese food with a special fortune cookie in it. When his date Cassie Birth opened it, a note reading “Will you go to prom with me? – Jake” fell out. Again, she said yes.
Yes, prom season is behind us. But these heart-warming stories reminded us of the power of custom food gifts to show your love to that special someone.
I know I’ll stash that thought away for when it’s time to order cookies for my anniversary.
