Here you can see the thickness of the cake pops. With the candy melt it's roughly 3/4 of an inch thick. The white and pink dipped hearts needed to be dipped twice to hide the dark red velvet cake - otherwise you could see the darkness at the edges. Happy Valentine's Day!!!!

I haven't had any reason to bake lately up until now. Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and I couldn't wait to try to make something. So I decided to attempt to make heart shaped cake pops. It ended up being rather easy. I took my cake and frosting mixture - red velvet of course. Since its red!!! I pressed my mixture into a heart shaped cookie cutter and voila! My heart shaped cake pops were here!!! The one thing I will make mention is that you need to make sure the thickness of the shape is thick enough for a lollipop stick to go in. A couple of mine were starting to break a little but nothing a little candy melt couldn't hide and fix!!!
