Happy Valentine’s Day: A Simple Valentines Sheet Cake

Today I have about a million things to do today – so I’m just popping in to say Happy Valentine’s Day and share this simple cake.

My to-do list today includes baking and decorating cakes & cupcakes, making pirate cupcake toppers, coloring fondant, filling & frosting cakes, going to a homeschool Valentine’s skating party, and meeting my husband for a Valentine’s date (he’s still out of town on work, so we’re meeting halfway between here and there).

Ugh.  Can I just go back to bed?

Just kidding…

Or not!

Anyway, this Valentines Sheet cake was made for a Kindergarten class.   I was asked to do something simple but pretty!

This was a single layer 9×13 vanilla cake covered with lots of vanilla buttercream!  I used homemade hot pink marshmallow fondant and Satin Ice Red vanilla fondant for the hearts and letters.

The letters were done with the new Wilton Fondant and Gum Paste Silicone Mold Set… love ‘em!  And thanks to my friend Susan who left a tip in my comments about freezing them, they were so much easier to work with this time around!

By the way – Susan also does cake at I Bake, You Enjoy!  Hop over and have a look at her wonderful work!

Anywho… I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!    xo, Rose

  1. It looks perfect!! How do you get your icing to look so perfect and even on the top?

    Rose this is so pretty! Did you freeze the letters while still in the mold? I can’t stand using molds or my tappits. I find it hard to get them out and keep their shape :(

    • Angela – I did! I pushed the fondant into the mold and stuck the whole thing in the freezer for about 10 minutes! Theh they “pop” out beautifully!

      • Angela Evans says:

        Thanks! I will be sure to try that trick. When I first saw your cake on my Pinterest I thought it was one by Corrie :) It looks flawless! Oh, I have another question. Was the tractor on top of the tractor cake make from RKT? It was super cute.

        • That is a HUGE compliment, thank you! Corrie ROCKS buttercream! Do you mean the tractor cake I posted on Facebook for my nephew tucker? If so, it was all cake!

  3. That cake is lovely, Rose! I don’t think it’s simple at all! How many of those letter cutout kits do you own?! Lol. Wonderful work! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Hey Rose,

    I wanted to let you know I made the roll out sugar cookies and they were good. I also made the royal icing and it taste ok to me, and I added the pink color to it. I put the icing on the cookies and some of it dried. The outline did great it was filling in the cookies. How do you actually fill it in. Do you use a bag or spoon it on? After mine sat for a while the cookies with icing did not taste so good. Could it be the color? Also, the molds for fondant do you just freeze them and pop them out for each letter. Thanks for your help.

    • For filling in cookies, I use squeeze bottles. You can see how I do that on these cupcake cookies: http://rosebakes.com/how-to-decorate-cupcake-cookies/.

      Royal icing is not the best tasting icing. It’s not bad, but it’s not terrific. It also can be affected by the brand you use and whether or not you add flavors. What brand of meringue powder did you use? I like Americolor – it tastes a lot better than Wilton. I also like to add a few drops of vanilla and/or almond to my icing to help the flavor some.

      For the molds, I push the fondant in and freeze them for maybe 10 minutes, then pop out the letters.

  5. I love all your sheet cakes. What kind of pan do you use??
