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.

  • 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.
