Bake your favorite 2-layer cake recipe or mix in Crown of Hearts pan following recipe instructions. Cool in pan on wire rack 15 minutes; remove from pan and cool completely. If desired, cut cake circle to size of pan. Arrange cooled cake on cut cake board or cake plate
Decorate sides of cake with Tip 18 shell hearts. Fill indented heart on top of cake with Tip 21 rosettes. Add Tip 22 star bottom border.
The rosette has the tight, swirling look of a rose, but is achieved in one continuous rotation, rather than with wrapped layers of petals. Single rosettes are also used as candleholders on top of a cupcake.
