If you still dont know what to make for Valentines Day, then how about making some sweet and delicious cake bite treats? I have made these pretty Valentine cake bites today.
I had some chocolate cake from the Pingu Christening cake in my freezer. Together with some chocolate ganache I rolled the crumbled cake into bite size treats. Remember when you make the cake bites, not to make them too big.
I could have used a chocolate coating on the cake bites but I just love the look of poured fondant icing on cakes. Poured fondant icing is time consuming to work with. So make sure that you dont rush while making them.
When I cover cake bites with poured fondant icing I prefer to use the same method as when I cover Petit Fours. Remember to give the fondant icing more color when you use a dark cake and less color (if you like) for “white” cake. I used a pink pale color and it barely shows on the photos. Next time I will remember to give it more color.
I piped a royal icing “swirl” and placed a pink gum paste heart on top. I used lustre dust on the hearts aswell for extra shimmer.
