Serves 18people
Ingredients
1
frozen pound cake (16 ounces; Sara Lee Family Size), thawed
18
light pink forks
18
Tootsie Rolls
18
caramels
1/4
cup chocolate cookie crumbs (Oreos, Famous Chocolate Wafers
1/4
cup graham crackers crumbs
1
vanilla (16 ounces) canned frosting
1/4
cup canned chocolate frosting
18
pink conversation hearts
18
mini red m&m's
36
mini chocolate chips (Nestle
Directions
1.
Cut 1/8 inch off each end of the pound cake, then cut into 1 inch – the cake I bought had handy little marks every inch. Using a 2 inch heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out hearts. The book says you can get 2 hearts from every piece of cake, I was only able to get 1, so it definitely depends on the size and shape of your cookie cutter.
2.
Push the forks into the cake, place them on a a cookie sheet with wax paper and freeze at least 15 minutes
3.
Meanwhile, make the ears, soften caramels and tootsie rolls, one at a time, in the microwave 3-6 seconds, be careful handling them. Roll out with a rolling pin and cut out a tear drop shape. I made a template with parchment paper. Lay on wax paper and set aside. Crush graham crackers and oreos and place in small bowls.
4.
Reserve about 1/4 cup vanilla frosting for decorating the face. Combine the remaining vanilla frosting and 1/4 cup chocolate frosting and melt in microwave about 20-30 seconds, you want the consistency to be like heavy cream {unwhipped} Dip cake into frosting, coating both sides. Sprinkle with crumbs, and place on wax paper. Put back into freezer.
5.
Afterwards, let them freeze another 15 minutes or so, it makes them easier to handle.
6.
Then with the reserved vanilla frosting, add the nose, eyes, mouth and ears. Just adorable!!
