I decided to make by sweetie and special little treat for Valentine's Day. I left it in the fridge front and centre so when he got home he couldn't miss it.
It is a very cute chocolate box filled with cake, cream cheese frosting and whipped cream topped with a chocolate lid, all in the very appropriate heart shape.
Chocolate Heart Box
Started off with some modeling chocolate
Once rolled out I cut out two heart shapes - one for the base and one for the lid.
I then started with the base. Next roll out a strip long enough to go around the heart (for the walls of the box) and cut it to the height you want. Do the same for the lid, just making the wall shorter.
To attach it to the base I melted some chocolate and painted it along with seam and then covered the whole inside. Once cooled it is very strong and sturdy.
Cut your cake with the same heart cutter - trim it slightly so it will fit inside the chocolate box.
Tort the cake.
Make your frosting.
Frost the cake and insert in the chocolate box.
Fill the top with more frosting or whipped cream and position the lid.
Sprinkle with shaved chocolate and presto!!
You have a delicious perfect Valentine's Day treat.
