Want to bake a cake for someone special but don’t have the chops to decorate it?

Just get chocolate chips and other candy decorations in contrasting colors and sizes, and press them into the frosting of your own homemade or a store-bought cake. Head to the candy store or baking supply store to check out the options.

RED AND PINK DECORATIONS

  • Red chips, called cherry chips or baking morsels
  • Pink and red decorating hearts
  • Cinnamon candies like Red Hots
  • Red lips sprinkles
  • Sweethearts “conversation hearts” from NECCO or these Talking Hearts
  •  
    CHOCOLATE DECORATIONS

  • Try white chocolate chips atop chocolate or pink frosting
  • Use milk or dark chocolate chips on pink or white frosting (contrast jumbo, regular and mini sizes)
  • We love decorating with chocolate or vanilla nonpareils
  • Coating discs, also called disc wafers and pistoles, are larger than morsels, about the size of a nickel; while they’re typically melted to make chocolates or baked goods, they are 100% delicious, quality chocolate
  • For mint lovers, press Junior Mints into the frosting
  • Although it’s a bit commercial, you can use M&M or Reese’s Pieces for fans of those candies
  •  
    What’s your cake decorating inspiration for Valentine’s Day?
