Hearts Cake


I made this fun heart cake last weekend to for my mom's (step-mom) birthday.  She is a very special lady that is always full of heart.  I thought this cake would be a perfect way to celebrate.  Plus, I had a great time designing it.  A chocolate and pink layered cake, almond buttercream, and candy hearts...you can't go wrong!!
Start with a four layer cake - 2 layers of chocolate and 2 layers of white cake colored pink.   Cover it in buttercream frosting.
Make these fun hearts using Wilton candy melts found at a hobby store.  Melt them as directed on the package and pipe onto parchment paper.

Decorate your cake as you please.  I added sprinkles to the edge of the cake and stuck hearts all over the top.
For extra decor, I added a few hearts and sprinkles to the bottom front of the cake.

A picture of the inside.  I think it turned out great.

My youngest daughter and Mimi.  What a fun celebration!!
