Valentine’s Day is coming! That means Valentine’s Day parties, Valentine’s classroom parties and Galentine’s Day parties. I love to make cutie treats for all the parties, and I this these little Valentine’s Day cakesicles turned out so adorable!
Technical question though…what do you call cakesicles without a popsicle stick? I truly don’t know the answer, but that’s what these little treats are! The process is the same, just no stick.
You can check out my reel showing how I made them.
To make these cutie treats, you will need:
–Pink candy melts
–Red candy melts
–White candy melts
–Valentine’s Day sprinkles
–Heart cake molds
-Cake – you can either make it yourself or use a box. Honestly, for these, I used strawberry cake mix from a box. Turned out great.
–Frosting – again, you can make it yourself or use store-bought.
I love the little melting pots. My sister gave me these for Christmas. You put the melts in the pot and close the lid and then put them in the microwave. They have a great little spout for pouring melted chocolate or candy into the molds.
These molds are great and come with eight little heart molds and one large heart mold. I made a few little ones and the large heart. To use the mold, you pour the melted candy from the silicone pots into the molds. Then I paint the chocolate up the sides of the mold to make sure the entire mold is covered.
I let these sit out for a while to harden.
In the meantime, go ahead and make your cake. I, again, just used strawberry cake mix from a box. I think strawberry cake is perfect for Valentine’s Day. However, you can use whatever you want! Just follow the instructions for your recipe…or box.
Once your cake is cool, crumble it into a bowl and mix with frosting. I used strawberry frosting to keep everything pink. Press some of your cake mixture into the mold.
Next, melt more of your candy and cover the cake. You can use a straight edge to make sure that the backs are flat and don’t have lots of extra pieces hanging off.
Let everything cool and harden and then pop your treats out of the mold. VERY CAREFULLY. It’s very easy to crack these in particular.
What are your favorite Valentine’s Day treats?
