Making Hearts Flutter Cake is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I didn't use cookies for the body or the heart on top of the body. First I frosted the whole cake white. Then I drew a circle for the head and an oval for the body. Then I took the heart cookie cutters that is suggested and made some heart outlines. I put one in the very middle of the oval. Then I frosted it all like the picture. I used black frosting for the arms, legs, and antenaes. Then I used red frosting for the feet and the ends on the antenaes. No need for the cookies or the candy. It was pretty easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have this cake pan and havent used it yet, this is soo cute. I might have to use this idea, or maybe I could make a fairy some how also in the middle. I was just gonna cover it fondant and either paint it with the gel colors or make stencils from the pan and cut them out of fondant. I will post a picture when I can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this idea with this mold. I did this cake about two years ago for Valentines Day and everyone loved it. It's very cute. The stars were pretty easy to do once you got a hang on it. Coloring the red icing was a bit tough but managed to finally get it right. For the bug in the middle I actually used the sugar cookie recipe and they turned out great!
