SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Decorators Preferred Fondant
  • Plastic bag
  • Toothpick
  • Gel food coloring: Rose
  • Rolling pin
  • Heart fondant cutters
  • Nonpareils
  • Oven
  • Wilton® heart pan
  • Cake leveler
  • Cake mix
  • Cake seal
  • Buttercream
  • Spatula
  • Fondant smoother

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Add a baseball-sized amount of Decorators Preferred Fondant to a plastic bag. Dip a toothpick into rose-colored gel food coloring and knead into fondant until color is spread evenly and at the desired hue. Add more color if necessary.
  2. Roll out fondant into a 1/8" thick layer. Use heart shaped fondant cutters to punch out heart shapes. Add nonperils to hearts as a decoration, let dry.
  3. Bake cake in Wilton® Heart Pan according to recipe instructions (or use a box mix).
  4. When cake has cooled, use a cake leveler to create a clean, straight and level cake.
  5. Spray with cake seal (this will help reduce crumbs mixing into icing).
  6. Add a generous amount of buttercream onto cake, gently spread it around with an offset spatula in an even layer for fondant.
  7. Roll out large ball of fondant- about the size of two baseballs- in a shape that is about 3" larger than the cake so there is enough fondant to drape over the cake.
  8. If the fondant sticks to a rolling pin, simply knead a little powdered sugar into it.
  9. Drape the fondant over the cake and smooth with a fondant smoother.
  10. Add hearts onto cake with a dab of buttercream as “glue.”
  11. Allow to set about 1/2 hour. Keep in a cool, dry place until serving.
