Step 1
  • Cut 1/8 inch off each end of the pound cake, then cut into 1 inch – the cake I bought had handy little marks every inch.
  • Using a 2 inch heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out hearts. The book says you can get 2 hearts from every piece of cake, I was only able to get 1, so it definitely depends on the size and shape of your cookie cutter.

Step 2

  • Push the forks into the cake, place them on a a cookie sheet with wax paper and freeze at least 15 minutes

Step 3

  • Meanwhile, make the ears, soften caramels and Tootsie Rolls, one at a time, in the microwave 3-6 seconds, be careful handling them.
  • Roll out with a rolling pin and cut out a tear drop shape. I made a template with parchment paper. Lay on wax paper and set aside.
  • Crush graham crackers and oreos and place in small bowls.

Step 4

  • Reserve about 1/4 cup vanilla frosting for decorating the face.
  • Combine the remaining vanilla frosting and 1/4 cup chocolate frosting and melt in microwave about 20-30 seconds, you want the consistency to be like heavy cream {unwhipped}

Step 5
  • Dip cake into frosting, coating both sides. Sprinkle with crumbs, and place on wax paper. Put back into freezer.
  • I found it best to let them freeze another 15 minutes or so, they were easier to handle.

    I love these! They are absolutely adorable! I was worried about the same thing Allison was asking about the icing melting. I want to make them for my son’s Valentine’s party at school and would be dropping them in the morning and the party is toward the end of the school day. Do you think these could be made with chocolate melts? Like the type you use to make chocolate covered pretzels… .

    Tried making these about two years ago for my daughter’s Valentines dance. So not as easy as it looks. Im a Illustrator/graphic artist and i really enjoy making different cupcakes for each party and they all generally come out pretty darn good, but these I have to say were not so hot. Not one of my better creations. Relly cute idea but good luck to anyone who takes on the challenge !
