Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to show your loved ones you care with something baked with love. My Petite Fours Heart Cakes are fun to make with Wilton cookie cutters and easy too. If you are not a cake decorator or just want to make something special that won’t take a lot of time, this is the recipe for you.

I love that Wilton makes it easy to make heartfelt treats with seasonal bakeware, decorations, and more every season like colorful sprinkles, hearts sprinkles ,royal icing decorations that can quickly turn any treat into a Valentine’s Day treat, red heart cake pan for any heart shaped cake or even chocolate chip cookie cake, heart cookie cutter 4-piece set that I used for this recipe, and “LOVE” and Hearts Resealable Treat Bags that are perfect for giving treats to friends and family.
For this recipe, we used the heart cookie cutter set to make petit fours in different sizes.
Larger hearts are perfect for giving as a gift to teachers, grandparents, or sharing with your loved one as a dessert for two.
It is extra festive with a simple fondant icing glaze on top.
The smaller hearts with a crinkle edge are the perfect size for petit fours, about a 2-bite size!Choose to add a fondant icing if you’d like either just on top or the entire cake. We chose to let the icing run along the edges.
“Hearts are always the first thing that comes to mind with Valentine’s Day and this year, we are going all out with heart-shaped bakeware, pink, red and white decorations and tools,” said Ashley Papanikolas, Brand Communications & Community Manager at Wilton. “We are making it easier than ever to add a festive spin to celebrate Valentine’s Day. This time of year, there is no better gift than a homemade treat, baked with love.”
I agree! Shape anything in a heart and you’ve got a festive dessert – or even entree. Check out a recipe I created for Acme Fresh Market for a family Valentine’s Day meal: Heart Shaped Chicken Parmesan. This recipe uses heart cookie cutters for the chicken! You really can do just about anything with cookie cutters!
