Tell someone special that you love them this Valentine's Day with a delicious treat, a Valentine's Heart Box Cake. It's remarkably easy to do. Let me show you.
Carefully bend the long strip to fit the shape of the heart cut out. Trim as necessary. I used a little buttercream to "glue" the pieces together. A matching color would be nice here but then you wouldn't be able to see it in the photo. If you plan to open and close the box(like if you hid a little present inside!) then I would use a matching color of royal icing. I didn't plan to move mine about so the buttercream was sufficient.
Personal side note: Now do you mind if I get nosy? Do you have romantic plans for Valentine's Day? Do you give fabulous gifts to your spouse, or plan a night on the town? I'm terribly curious because..you see...my husband and I never do anything for Valentine's Day. It's really kind of a mutual agreement. I like to make Valentine's treats because they are fun and pretty, but my family eating said treats is really the extent of our hooplah. Why did I have to tell you that? I don't know. I guess I just had to fess up so I didn't feel like a Valentine fraud. I feel better now.
Happy Valentine's Day!
