Mini Love Letter Cakes

Use this step-by-step tutorial to make easy mini love letter cakes. Great for Anniversaries or Valentine’s day and can even be used as Wedding party favors.

I am a sucker for those old ROMANTIC flicks, which inspired me to make these mini love letter cakes.

I find handwritten love letters so SWEET and personal! 🙂

But, in this day and age, emails have REPLACED those love letters… *sighs* 🙁

And seriously, I DON’T find anything romantic about reading emails! :S

Spray some perfume on it, draw on it or even KISS it, wearing your favorite lipstick so that it leaves a kiss mark…

I kept the decoration very SIMPLE and used red and pink heart sprinkles but you can also try using stamps.

They are cheap and EASY to use on fondant.

I used my favorite chocolate cake and buttercream icing recipe for this project.

I added all the details with white marshmallow fondant, knife indentations and heart shaped sprinkles.

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

Chocolate cake
White buttercream icing
White marshmallow fondant
Strawberry jam (Seedless)
Heart sprinkles

And here are the steps:

Step 1:
Prepare your chocolate cake in a rectangular pan.
Cut it in half and fill it with buttercream icing.
Then, use a sharp knife to cut small even sized rectangular pieces.

Chilling the cake for an hour really makes slicing easier.

Step 2:

    These are SO adorable! I just love them to death!

    A close girlfriend of mine, we still write letters to each other. It may not be love letters, but I love the idea of it 🙂
