a hearty ombre cake

14th February 2014

-13 it’s safe to say, i’m obsessed with ombre.  i’ve been drooling over some sensational ombre heart cakes for a minute.  of course, we all love this one.  As opposed to making my own sugar hearts, I found these Wilton icing decorations right when Michael’s started celebrating Valentine’s Day and grabbed them with hopes of inspiration.  and then, legitmately as I was crafting the idea for my own hearty ombre cake, i saw this cutie, thanks to best friends for frosting.

It’s very simple.  I’d recommend 3 packages of hearts (so that’s 243 hearts) for a 2 layer 6-inch cake.  Use a dab of icing as glue.

I always love adding a good craft to a cake.  Check out my retractable arrow valentines post to see how to assemble the ombre arrow.  and Happy Valentine’s Day!  Hope it is filled with all of your loves!
