Project Day : Love Heart Cake













Spreading the love this weekend. I am having some friends over for dinner tonight and I thought I would make a cake with some love in it!
  • Do yourself a favour and buy yourself a love heart cake tin. Round and square ones are so boring to me!
  • Grab some roses [real please] and some white ribbon.
  • Wash your roses thoroughly. Dunk them good in some cold water. This will remove any bugs, bits and pieces.
  • Cut each rose off at the bud, so just a teeny piece of stalk remains.
  • Peel off the little bud leaves underneath each rose.
  • Bake your cake [mine is vanilla bean cake] and make some frosted icing. The real thick stuff!
  • Ice your cake and be generous. Slap it all over quite thick. Smooth out the edges. Make sure you ice the sides too.
  • Grab your ribbon and lay it on the bottom of the cake to imply a bouquet.
  • Place your roses randomly into the cake. Don't make it look to arranged. Just plonk them anywhere.
Now you have a pretty little cake that just screams out love. I guess it would even make a cute wedding cake. Cheap one too!
Have a love filled weekend. Simone xx

  11. A baker I am not, but if the cake comes in the shape of a heart and is adorned with roses, I certainly don't think anyone will question my talent. Consider me inspired!

  13. Every time I see a heart shaped pan it reminds me of one my mother had. The roses are a nice touch.

  18. I so wish I had seen this design last year when my son became engaged! I baked them a chocolate cake made in a heart shaped tin (I agree that square and round are boring!) and decorated it my own way, but it would have looked fab using roses! Great idea!
