Diy Heart Cake
My friend Andressa with Twinkle Twinkle Little Party inspired me on this DIY Heart Cake. She posted this super simple conversation heart cake (and adorable party) and I thought…hmmmm… I think I could do that!
Here’s my own little twist on with chocolate chips because, well, chocolate chips!
I have a video below of how I created this, but this requires absolutely no cake decorating skills. (Have I mentioned I am a cake decorating school drop out? For real. I was awful.)
How to Create the Design
I basically took a home baked cake (I used a box mix and made a homemade cream cheese icing) then took a cookie cutter and used it as a template for my chocolate chips. I slightly pushed the cutter into the cake, then just poured chocolate chips in. I pushed the chocolate chips into the frosting just a little and then removed the cookie cutter. I used mini chocolate chips for this because that’s what I had on hand, but think regular would work great too.
The chocolate chips spilled out the side a little bit, but I liked the look of the imperfect heart. If you want the heart to look more crisp or perfect, I would push down harder along the edges of the chocolate chips and I think it would work great!
One other thing I love about this is that it has so many applications – you could use any themed cookie cutter and any kind of candy to create your own design!
