One hip destination, 2 sugar queens. Enough to cause a glucose overdose? Now that’s left to be seen. However, rumour has it that Anuya Apte and Aditi Garware come with a statutory warning: Happiness is homemade, so expect a stampede.

Award winning luxury destination, Sol de Goa hosts two savoury experts at a one-of-its-kind workshop that has mothers and home-makers excited to learn some new tricks. We hope men get it too, as more men embrace kitchen duties and realise that the way to the heart of their beloved, is also through her stomach.

Says Director, Sol de Goa, Nilima Suraj Morajkar,”I visualised this workshop for I felt people in Goa could do with some hands-on experience with the `Out of the Box’ cake workshop and cake decoration art techniques. It is a great learning workshop to know how to go beyond regular icing on cakes, and in turn this could enhance the business of professionals in the cake baking industry. Also, a great tool to learn for baking at home.”

  1. The very heart of your writing while appearing reasonable initially, did not really settle very well with me personally after some time. Somewhere within the sentences you actually were able to make me a believer but only for a very short while. I still have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you might do well to fill in all those breaks. When you actually can accomplish that, I would undoubtedly be fascinated.
