Be My Valentine – Conversation Heart Cake

LOVE this Valentine Conversation Heart Cake! and she has the best drink recipe to go with it

Roses are red,

cake stands are green,

I heart cake,

and this is a cinch to make.


If you’re like me and the entire extent of your cake decorating repertoire starts and stops with applying frosting, don’t despair.

Who needs fancy roses and swirls when you can buy a box of cake mix, a can of frosting and a big bag of conversation hearts and whip up this beauty that will have people oohing and aahing at your mad culinary skills.

Whip up this cake with a batch of my Cupid Floats and you’ll work your way into everyone’s hearts.

Valentine Conversation Heart Cake - such a cute idea and love the cake stand!

Conversation Heart Cake

* Whip up your favorite cake – homemade or from a box (I won’t judge)

* Frost

* Apply conversation hearts (I used a big 35oz bag with some leftover to cover a two layer 9″ cake). Start at bottom and work your way around in circles ending at the top center of the cake.

* Admire your culinary skills and apply for the next season of Top Chef

Love this conversation heart cake for Valentine's Day! How cute is that green cake stand too

TIP: when frosting a cake, tear off a few pieces of wax paper and place under the cake then frost. Remove wax paper when done for a no mess cake stand!

Great cake frosting tip using wax paper!

I heart it!

Conversation Heart Cake - such a fun idea for Valentine's Day!

It’s fun and easy and really brightens up the kitchen.

Almost too cute to eat …

almost (sorry I’m talking with cake in my mouth).
