Conversation Heart Piñata Cake
piñata cake –
1 cake mix and the ingredients listed on package
optional, Wilton Spray and Seal
3-4 cups frosting*
7 ounces Conversation Hearts
pink coloring (or whatever color you want to make your cake)
red modeling chocolate, fondant or frosting
18 x 13 inch baking pan
non-stick tin foil or parchment paper
5 inch heart cookie cutter
3 inch heart cookie cutter
1 small cardboard cake round
optional: alphabet cutters
Set one full cake on the cake board. Pipe some icing around the edge of the cakes, then stack them on top of each other. Be sure you don’t add too much icing, you don’t want it to ooze into the center of the hearts. Frost and stack all 4 of the cut-out cakes.
Using a tube of Betty Crocker Icing to do this job was perfect. I used up my entire tube. If you make homemade frosting, I’d suggest doing this step using a piping bag.
This cake would also look really nice covered in fondant.
