I made this cake for my husband last year (with my kids help of course) for Valentine's Day. He loves a good box of chocolates, but on top of a chocolate cake was even better!


Chocolate cake mix, white fondant, box of chocolates, top of the box to cover the finished cake

How to Make

  • Bake a chocolate cake in a heart shaped pan. Cover with white fondant, surround the base in fondant rolled into balls. Place the cake onto a heart shaped board. Place chocolates on top of cake. Write your own message on the top of the chocolate box.

  • Tips for Taking a Great Photo:
    • Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your cupcake or sweet treat is the star!
    • Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
    • Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
    • For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
    • With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
