Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary cakes

Tomorrow is the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  (It falls on the Friday following the Second Sunday after Pentecost). Saturday will be the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. I was asked to make a cake that would celebrate these two events for tomorrow so here it is:
If you, like I, was wondering what these feasts are about, check here for Sacred Heart of Jesus and here for Immaculate Heart of Mary. It all boils down to love. Lots of love! The cakes are just heart shaped cakes on a base of two 9" square cakes. Chocolate cakes, buttercream icing. Orange peels for flames and the cross and sword are cardboard wrapped in tape.

Happy Valentine's Day 2013!

I haven't been here in a while. I've been scrapbooking and having Christmas and making all the same things that have been already displayed on here. Today was different. I made a cake - chocolate, of course. I went for a walk while it cooled and when I returned, I decorated it like this in 30 minutes from start to finish!
I must thank my friend Cindy, who explained how to make these roses. I'll share her secret with you: Use a 1M tip and swirl it like a rosette and voila! a large rose. (The 1M tip is a giant star tip that needs a special coupler. Well worth it to make these roses.) There you have it! Happy Valentine's Day.
