Today I'm making Little Debbie Valentines, not valentines for Little Debbie, but valentines using Little Debbie cakes! When I'm at the grocery, I try and stay away from the cookie isle, but these were on an end cap, caught my eye and I had to have them. Because who can resist a heart shaped Little Debbie?
Really, they're cute enough left alone, but I'm going to show you three ways you can dress up the little chocolate cakes. Just when I thought I was done dressing up Little Debbie, my husband brings home the red velvet Little Debbie Cakes and this happened. They turned out to be my favorite.
Little Debbie Valentine Cakes
This is just one of the reasons to walk down the cookie isle.
And if that's not enough, how about these...
Little Debbie Love Bugs~
See what I mean?
If you can dip, you can decorate.
I love my Little Debbie Love Bug!
But I really really love the Little Debbie Fish.
Yep, of all the fish in the sea, you're the one for me!
I must tell you these were all keepers.
How can you resist all the Little Debbie cuteness?
Well, you can't, so let me show you how simple they were to decorate.
Let's start with the rose topped Little Debbie.
Start by melting red candy melts in a shallow glass micro wave safe bowl.
After they are melted, spoon the candy melts into a silicone rose mold. (Amazon link below)
Let the candy melts harden in the freezer.
Remove from the mold.
Open the box of Red Velvet Little Debbie Valentine Cakes.
Using a Wilton #352 leaf tip, pipe a leaf on each side of the heart.
Place the red candy rose in the center.
Yep, it's that easy.
Next let's start dipping to create the Love Bugs.
Like I said, if you can dip, you can decorate.
Begin by melting red candy melts in a shallow microwave bowl.
Unwrap the Little Debbie cakes.
Dip the top of the cake into the red chocolate.
Let dry on wax paper.
Using black frosting and a Wilton #3 round tip, pipe the antennae on the chocolate.
Add a row of red frosting with the Wilton #13 star tip.
Pipe a couple of dots and add the royal icing eyes.
Then add a few more teeny tiny dots and add candy heart sprinkles.
Will you be my love bug?
Next we'll dip the tip of the heart in chocolate.
Add three black eye lashes with a #1 Wilton round tip, and a row of red frosting with a #13 Wilton star tip.
Pipe two small lines with a Wilton #3 round tip for the lips.
Because all fish have lips.
Add a royal icing eye.
Add dots of frosting to hold tiny heart candies for the fins.
