When it comes to cake decorating, are you intimidated by smooth buttercream and sharp edges? I get it. Mastering these techniques can take some serious time and energy. But, just because you are not there quite yet, does not mean your cakes should be anything less than AMAZING!
It turns out, there are a lot of ways to work around those seemingly impossible smooth sides and razor sharp edges. Today's cake gives you my favorite method - just cover up all the imperfections with a bunch of stuff! I know it sounds silly, but cake bakers do this ALL the time. Why do you think buttercream borders at the bottom of the cake were created?! I know it sounds silly, but I promise you, no one will ever know the difference!
As long as you have a solid base coat (don't forget that very important CRUMB COAT), the conversation hearts will cover every flaw and imperfection on the cake. Everyone will be super impressed with your cake baking skills and you will look like a freaking rock star!

Oh my gosh, this is the prettiest thing ever - and you are right, despite it looking like it would be a difficult thing to make the recipe actually looks really easy and I can't wait to give it a go. Even if it isn't Valentines any more! Holly from The Art of Being Holly xo
