I love heart shaped cakes.
No matter the time of year.
I have a couple intricately detailed heart shaped Williams-Sonoma cake pans.
They are so much fun!
When I saw this picture of reliquary ex votos, I immediately thought they would be amazing as cakes!
Then I remembered that my friend Rosie, at Sweetapolita, had once made gold heart cakes!
And I thought, this might be do-able.
To look like the ex votos, a little silver dust painting perhaps?
Or, frosted and covered with edible pearls and/or silver dragees?
I get super sparkly edible glitter, silver/gold dust and dragees at Kitchen Krafts.
I think this is on my next project list for sure.
Also, it's David Bowie's birthday, so heart shaped cakes are a must!
Dance Magic Dance!
Random, but true!
Happy Birthday David Bowie!!!!
You remind me of the babe!!! < click there
