How To Make Mini Love Letter Cakes

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
Knife

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.

Tip:
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 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.
