DIY Conversation heart cakes for valentines day recipe

Happy Friday guys! I’m so excited to introduce you to one of our guest DIYers and a super cute conversation heart cake tutorial today! Since me and Emily aren’t the best at baking we felt it would be better if we handed you over to Holly from Club Crafted for this adorable tutorial just in time for Valentines Day….

Hi there! I, Holly, am really only into Valentine’s Day for the treats. Sorry boys, but dessert is still the way to my heart, and whether you celebrate Valentine’s Day with your girl gang or with your S.O., these fun conversation heart cakes are the perfect way to celebrate the day of love.

Based on the classic conversation heart candies, these mini cakes can be customized with your favorite little sayings. Display them for a party, make them for your friends or make them for simply indulging on Valentine’s Day! Using any recipe you’d like with mini heart pans, spread pastel colored icing all over the cake and write words on them with red gel icing to create cakes that look just like the conversation hearts we all know and love. Here’s how to make them!

YOU WILL NEED:

Your favourite cake recipe* // Your favourite white frosting recipe // 4-inch heart springform pans // Cake level or knife // 6-inch cake boards // Gel food colouring // Angled spatula // Red gel icing //

*Note, a recipe for 24 cupcakes will make approximately 6 mini heart cakes.

STEP 1:

First, choose your flavor! I thought it was appropriate to make red velvet cake with a smooth cream cheese frosting for these themed cakes. You can use any combination as look as the frosting is light enough to be dyed a pastel color. Then, preheat your oven to the necessary setting, usually 350 degrees.

STEP 2:

Spray the heart springform pans with cooking spray and set aside. Prepare the cake batter according to the recipe instructions and divide the batter between the pans so that each is about ½ full. You may need to bake in batches depending upon how many cake pans you have.

STEP 3:

Place the pans on top of a standard baking sheet. This makes them easier to move into and out of the oven. Baking times will vary according to the recipe. Bake for approximately the time of a batch of cupcakes and check often, increasing time as needed until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
