Valentine's is only a couple of days away so I thought it would be the perfect time to share this Floral Heart Princess Cake & Heart Cake Pops.
I made this a couple of weeks ago for sisters celebrating their 2nd & 4th birthdays! The little girls at the party were all dressing up and being princesses and the birthday girls had pink dresses with little embroidered hearts made of flowers!!
I actually just posted their cakes from last year a couple of days ago.. the Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star Party! Anywho, back to this cake....
The best feature - in my opinion, was the pretty flower heart wreath on the bottom. Making the tiny flowers was so much fun and it was just so delicate and girly. Also in this picture you can see (barely) that I used a floral impression mat to give texture to the fondant covered board.
Some of the tiny flowers were hand-rolled, but I also used this flower punch, the smallest ones in this set, and a tiny leave cutter from this set.
The borders were done with a silicone pearl mold and I wrapped the board in ribbon (tutorial here).
At first I had the top tier blank, but my husband felt like it needed something, so I decided to add the tiny flowers and as it turns out, he was right! The flowers on top were the perfect touch!!
For the topper, I made this tiara out of gum paste. I let it dry overnight, then sprayed it with edible gold spray. When it was dry, I rolled small pink pearls from the same fondant on the bottom tier and "glued" them to the tiara with melted candy melts.
Floral Heart Princess Cake
Here are a few other details about this cake:
- It was 5" and 7" round tiers baked in Magic Line Pans. The bottom tier had 3 layers of cake and the top tier had 2 layers of cake.
- The cake was all strawberry cake with vanilla butterceam.
- It was covered and decorated with homemade marshmallow fondant.
- The tiara was gum paste.
In addition to the cake, I also made 50 Pink Heart Cake Pops. 🙂 These were made with vanilla cake (see how to make the cake ball dough here). I roll out the dough, covered it in plastic wrap, then cut the hearts out with a heart cookie cutter. Laying the plastic wrap over the top actually have the hearts the rounded edges. After they were chilled, I dipped them pink candy melts. I loved the way they turned out!
And that's it!! Do you have any questions about the Floral Heart Princess Cake & Heart Cake Pops? Leave me a comment!
This cake is beautiful. I am from Ecuador where is not easy to find many of the ingredients you use but I am starting to investigate by my own many things. You are incredible. Thanks for sharing it!
Thank you for stopping by Ericka!
has anyone used cor syrup for thinning candy melts?
I love the delicate look of this cake, I have two questions. First what would you charge for a cake like this and about how much time did you have involved with the baking, decorating etc. I am a home cake baker and have been for about 35 years, I have just recently started decorating with fondant and am finding it takes me much more time to complete a cake than when I was decorating with buttercream and due to this am finding that it's difficult for me to know what to charge for a fondant decorated cake. I love your site!
Hi Monica - I have a post about pricing here: https://rosebakes.com/how-to-charge-for-cakes/. This cake probably took me 4-5 hours to do it start to finish (although I don't bake & decorate on the same day). Thanks!

Rose did you free hand the heart wreath? Or did u use a cookie cutter to first leave an impression on the cake and then place the flowers around? I would be soo scared that the heart was crooked..urs looks perfect !!
Thank you! I actually cut out a pink heart with a cookie cutter, attached it to the cake and then did the flowers around it (and I still didn't feel like it was perfectly symmetrical).
Your cakes are amazing. I am hoping to make some of your cakes soon. We have 5 daughters, the youngest one is 18 mo and we have a grand daughter who is 7 mo so I would love to make them each a birthday cake. Our daughters name is Leia, so I want to make her a princess cake. I am so glad I found your site. Just simply amazing!! Thank you for sharing all of your talent
