Decorate a special dessert with sweet little messages of love.
- Start with your favorite two-layer cake. Make a crumb coat of frosting by spreading on a thin layer all over the cake. Refrigerate until frosting is firm.
- While cake chills, sort the candies to make sure you have a good mix of colors and sayings.
- Frost the cake, creating a thick, smooth surface all over. The top should be as smooth as possible. Use a toothpick or skewer to lightly draw a heart on the top. Transfer the cake to a stand before adding hearts.
- Apply candy hearts to the side of the cake, using a pattern, if desired, to avoid repeating colors, sayings or both. Place candies over heart on top of the cake.
