This Valentines cake craft is easy to make. When you're finished, the kids can help eat the cake scraps and lick out the bowls!
You will need: A sheet cake pan (9 X 12 will work) or two if you want to do a layer of vanilla and layer of chocolate in your cakes, Cake mix and the additional ingredients called for on the box, Large heart shaped cookie cutters, Frosting, & cake decorations (sprinkles, cherries, royal icing pieces)
Bake your cake according to the directions of your recipe and let it cool. Carefully remove it from the pan.
Next, Use your heart cookie cutters to cut heart shapes from the cake. Try to make them close together so you use as much of the cake as possible.
Layer your hearts neatly with some frosting between layers. Two layers is good, but you can do 3 if it won't tip over. You may want to frost it on the serving plate with a paper doily in place (if you're going to use one). It will be hard to move it once it is frosted.
Finish frosting your cake and decorate it. Most baking isles have royal icing decorations you can add to the cake and tubes of colored frosting for easy use.
Beautiful! You're sweetheart will love it!
If you're planning to use a Valentines cake to propose, you can hide the engagement ring on top of the cake. A rose in bloom covering the ring would look very romantic.
You can also use the heart shaped cookie cutters to make chocolate hearts. You take chocolate... melt it... mix with butter - oops - coconut oil - get it into cookie cutter...They can be decorated with sprinkles, nuts, or raisins and then frozen until ready to give.
