Today I’m showing you how to make a Valentine’s Day Rainbow Drip Candy Cake. This Valentine’s cake is covered with rainbow chocolate ganache and lots of Valentine candy. Also included in this tutorial is how to make white chocolate ganache, and how to color it using candy colors.
For this cake you don’t need to have a special pan. Though that would have been funny . . . “Here’s how you make a heart shaped cake. Take you heart shaped cake pan….” Annnnnnnnnd….CUT! Video done.
I have a sad sense of humour.
But seriously, this is a really easy way to make a heart shaped cake without the special pan. Collecting all of the awesome shaped pans is a storage nightmare. I recently just sold over 20 shaped character pans because seriously, when am I going to use those and they take up SO much room! I saved a couple of my favourites though to make a couple videos with.
The strawberries on top of this cake add a beautiful pop of red to the cake, and I love the white/red contrasting colours. You could use any fruit though and I think it would still look beautiful. It would also make for a great wedding cake and you could theme the fruit with the colours of the wedding party! The possibilities are endless.
What would you say is the most stereotypical Valentine’s day present to give? Flowers? Candy? Jewellery? CHOCOLATES? According to my research on amazon, people even give perfume! What a thoughtful gift . . . I love you but you could smell better.
Well, I thought that playing on the idea of giving chocolates as the most popular Valentine’s Day gift to give (not determined by any research!), I would make a box of chocolate CUPCAKES instead. The cupcakes look like a box of regular holiday treats, but upon closer inspection, you realize they’re so much better and they’re in cupcake form! By the way, if your “sweetheart” gives you candy, leave him. You can get that stuff at the dollarstore. I would know . . . it’s where I bought some of the ingredients for the Box of Chocolate Cupcakes I made. Note to self: don’t shop at the dollarstore and then tell people. Oops.
Do you think Valentine’s Day is overrated? Commercialized to the point of nausea? It seems as though the second that the Christmas decorations are put away, the stores are filling the shelves with pink and red Valentine paraphernalia. I guess they all have to make their quota’s, or whatever it is stores do. As do people on YouTube, which is why we have a Valentine’s day video going live in January. Oops again.
What is happening here? I think they had me at “Cupid Corn”. How I could I resist THAT!?!?
