If you’re an unmarried foodie, then chances are that your husband-to-be will try to propose to you over food –thinking that you’d find it “sweet”. To prepare you for what’s to come, here are some food proposals that have worked, and failed, in the past.
GALETTE DES ROIS
This might limit the proposal to the month of January, but it’s pretty damn worth it. Anyone familiar with the Galette des rois – a frangipane-based cake associated in a number of countries with the festival of Epiphany (when the three Biblical Kings found Jesus)– will know that it holds a trinket. Some have switched the trinket for a ring, meaning that no choking is involved as eaters are on the lookout for an object.
This one has been featured in a number of films (including Mickey Blue Eyes) –and yet people still aren’t bored of it. Slip in a “will you marry me?” note into a fortune cookie, and see how the future Mrs. reacts. Do make sure it isn’t served to the wrong table though, as to avoid an embarrassing situation. Even better: eat it at home (public proposals should be banned). Our only issue is that fortune cookies aren’t the tastiest – but it’s the thought that counts.
NUTELLA / COCA COLA
A very 2015 proposal would be to spell “Will You Marry Me” on 4 Nutella pots or Coca Cola cans. Would we like that? Probably not – but the labels’ marketing teams would be ecstatic. #HashtagIt
We find this one pretty cute, although we’re not sure how feasible it is. Place a ring inside an artichoke and watch her peel off her vegetable until she stumbles upon it.
This very 90’s proposal somehow never gets old.
END OF A MUG
It’s Sunday morning, you make her breakfast in bed and watch her as she drinks her coffee. As she finishes her last drops, watch her smile as she discovers her happy ending.
RING IN ICE CUBE
It could be creepy but it could also be romantic. Make sure the drink is clear (like champagne for instance) so that she can actually see the ring, and not choke on it.
Stick the spoon in a cake/granola/anything she enjoys and watch her as she takes her first bite and licks the spoon.
