mini love letter 2

I have seen lots of love letter cookies but I haven’t seen many love letter cakes.

So, I prepared a tutorial for these mini love letter cakes today.

They are just so adorable, simple and perfect for Valentine’s day!

To make these cakes, you will need the following supplies:

Chocolate cake
Buttercream icing
White fondant
Pink and red heart sprinkles
Seedless strawberry jam

These are the instructions:

Step 1:
Prepare a chocolate cake in a square or rectangular cake pan.
Once the cake has cooled down, level it and fill it with buttercream icing.
Then, cut the cake into small rectangular pieces.

If you chill the cake in the freezer for 20- 30 minutes, it will be easier to cut the cake and you will also have less crumbs.

Step 2:
Spread a thin coating of seedless strawberry jam on top of the cake.

Step 4:
Place the jam covered side of the cake onto your rolled fondant.
Press very gently on the top so that the cake sticks to the fondant.

Step 5:
Use a knife to cut off excess fondant around the cake.

Step 6:
Flip the cake over and use a knife to make the envelope details.
Be very careful not to push the knife too hard or else the fondant will tear.

You can arrange the sprinkles a little differently and just have fun with it!
