Conversation Heart Cupcake Toppers

Here is a Valentine's Day tutorial that I shared over at The 36th Avenue.
Do you follow Desirée's blog?
If not, you are missing out...it is fabulous!


Come make some Conversation Heart Cupcake Toppers with me!


You will need:
heart cookie cutter
wax paper
candy melts
red gel food coloring
a batch of cupcakes
frosting (you can buy it or use this buttercream recipe)

First, make a template by tracing your cookie cutter on a piece of paper.
Tape your template to a piece of cardboard or the back of a cookie sheet.
Tape a piece of wax paper over the template.


Next, put your candy melts in a bowl and microwave:
Cook for 30 seconds, stir, and repeat until they are completely melted.
(My green and purple candy melts were both darker than I wanted,
so I mixed them each with white candy melts to lighten the color.)
Put each color in a separate decorating bag, or in a ziploc with the corner snipped off.


Filling in the outline, pipe the candy melts on to your wax paper.
Put the hearts in the fridge for a few minutes to set up.


When the hearts have hardened, carefully peel them off the wax paper.
Tint a small amount of frosting red and put it in a decorating bag,
or you can just use a tube of red gel food coloring.
Write messages on the flat side of your hearts...
you can personalize them any way you like!


Frost your cupcakes and place a heart on top of each one.
Share the love and give them to your sweethearts!


Enjoy!

  18. Have you ever thought about including a little bit
    more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and
    everything. But imagine if you added some great
    images or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content
    is excellent but with images and video clips, this
    website could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its field.
    Awesome blog!

  19. Seriously these are gorgeous! I've made smaller decorations with candy melts, but never this big. I love how they look on the cupcakes! :)

  20. This was SO easy! Thank you! I have never heard of melts until I saw this on Pinterest. Went to Michael's and they had so many flavors and colors! Being a first timer I only got two colors (just in case it didn't work out) But they worked out beautifully!
