Valentines Puppy Plaque

There’s only one day left until the 14th Feb! Have you got anything special planned? Or are you just going to pretend it’s not happening? 😉
Now, I know I say this every year … Valentines isn’t something we celebrate. 
B-u-u-ut celebrate does not equal decorate
So, there have been Valentines-themed edibles exiting my kitchen for the past couple of weeks already.     

Last year we did “Puppy Love” for the Valentines cookie class. That was one of my favourite V-Day themes to date. (It has now been eclipsed by this year’s “Stuck on You” theme).

I so enjoyed that theme and those colours, that when I saw a clay plaque similar to this, I knew I had to re-create if in fondant.
(Or rather fondant and modelling chocolate – my standard blend).
It’s so very quick and easy to do, that if you’re only deciding now to make a cake for your special people for tomorrow, a decoration like this will take hardly any time to put together.

I used a little rubber stamp set to print on the “i / you”.
If you don’t have letter stamps, you could paint it on, or write it on using an edible marker.

Place onto the top or side* of a cake, or make a smaller version to use as a cupcake topper.

(*For heavy details going onto the side of a cake that’s been covered in fondant, I use melted chocolate to secure it in place.)

Happy Valentines Day and happy decorating!
