Hello, The 36th Avenue fans!
 
I’m Robin from Bird On A Cake.
 
 
 
I’m SO thrilled to be here…isn’t Desiree the sweetest?
 
I am a Florida girl who loves to bake and blog!
 
I started a family blog over three years ago, where I write about life
and my adventures as a mom with two autistic children.
 
As my cake decorating skills improved, I started adding some cakes to my blog mix. 
Then, a few months ago, I decided to start a new blog just about my cake adventures.
 
I share yummy recipes, decorating tutorials and lots of pretty cakes at Bird On A Cake.
 
 
Today I am sharing a tutorial for some cute Valentine’s cupcake toppers…
conversation hearts made with candy melts!
 
 
You will need:
heart cookie cutter
wax paper
candy melts
red gel food coloring
a batch of cupcakes
frosting (you can buy it or use this buttercream recipe)
 
First, make a template by tracing your cookie cutter on a piece of paper.
Tape your template to a piece of cardboard or the back of a cookie sheet.
Tape a piece of wax paper over the template.
 
 
Next, put your candy melts in a bowl and microwave:
Cook for 30 seconds, stir, and repeat until they are completely melted.
(My green and purple candy melts were both darker than I wanted,
so I mixed them each with white candy melts to lighten the color.)
Put each color in a separate decorating bag, or in a ziploc with the corner snipped off.
 
 
Filling in the outline, pipe the candy melts on to your wax paper.
Put the hearts in the fridge for a few minutes to set up.
 
 
When the hearts have hardened, carefully peel them off the wax paper.
Tint a small amount of frosting red and put it in a decorating bag,
or you can just use a tube of red gel food coloring.
Write messages on the flat side of your hearts…
you can personalize them any way you like!
 
 
Frost your cupcakes and place a heart on top of each one.
Share the love and give them to your sweethearts!
 
 
 
I hope you enjoy making these Valentine’s cupcake toppers!

Oh Robin… You are EXTRAORDINARY!
 
The first time Robin’s blog  caught my eye was months ago when she linked up
this Candy Corn Cake to my link party.
 
 
 
 
Now months later I was so thrilled when she accepted my invitation to visit
