Well tomorrow is the day! I love Valentines day (I mean I don't go crazy and decorate my house head to toe with crafts or anything), but I do love making crafts with my girl. Today we made a heart shape box to put some homemade cake bites in. We will be giving this cute box to her Mini (grandma) for V-day.
It went a little like this:
Get a cereal box
Cut four 1 inch strips out of the box
Cut 2 heart shapes out of the box
Make sure that the top strip is on the very edge of the heart
Make sure the bottom strip is glued on about 1/8 of an inch in the heart
This way the box with close together
Then I glued trim around the sides and my daughter glued the fabric on the hearts. We then made some fabric flowers together and picked out a cute photo of the two of them together. We glued everything on and added some little gems.
Here is the result:
If you have never made cake bites before they are super easy and DELICIOUS!
You need a box cake, a container of frosting, and some chocolate for melting.
Bake the cake according to box. When cooked let cool for 30 min. Put in mixer and add frosting. Mix all together. You will basically have cake crumbs and frosting. Put in fridge for several hours. When cold, scoop into little balls. Then put into freezer for an hour to set. Melt the chocolate and dip the cake bites into it with a toothpick. If it breaks apart easy it needs to be put in the freezer longer. When all cake bites are dipped in chocolate you can decorate with sprinkles or drizzling white chocolate on the top.
If you do a google image search on cake bites you will see a bunch of really neat ideas people have done with these!
We are going to make a strawberry cake with vanilla frosting and milk chocolate coating. YUM!!
Happy V-day everyone!
