|Remember when I bought all the 66% off after Christmas clearance candy?? My sweet boy helped me sort all the red from the green M&M's. Now we just need a big Saint Patty's Day party, right!|
|And here's how you make a big heart shape without having to buy the heart pan! Pour half the cake batter into a square pan, the other half into a circle. Cut the circle in half and put one chunk on either side of the square. Nifty, huh?|
|Okay so here' a little trick to get the cake flat across the top - use floss! Works great and your kids will love the "scraps" of cake for a little treat.|
|Yes, it took forever. No, I probably won't do it again!|
|But it looked pretty cool!! And the kids LOVED it!|
|Another cake I did, this one was for Allyson and Adrienne's birthday (had a hard time getting the names on those little hearts). Here's a cool way to get the small hearts - I poured the cake batter into a heart shaped cookie cutter which was placed in a pan. The idea came from my son's kindergarten teacher when she made the parents a brownie in a gingerbread shaped cookie cutter and gave the whole thing to us as a party favor.

Happy Heart Day a couple early!! :)
