Have you ever had your heart broken? It really does make your chest hurt. Physiologically it’s probably shock, stress, anxiety and subsequent acid reflux – heart burn! Or maybe it really is just that horrible pain of having your heart figuratively ripped out. And falling in love gives you that giddy flutter, of a gaggle of butterflies flittering around in your stomach – excitement, hope, and that deep longing for that other person! The feeling that everything is good in the world, and love is real. I think that must be where the world started in co-opting the heart as the official symbol of love.
Speaking of hearts – I really liked how this ruffly buttercream two tone pink and purple heart cake turned out – requested by Alissa for her little Eva’s 4th birthday party!
A note from Eva’s mom Alissa:
“The cake was AMAZING! You should have seen Eva’s face when I gave her a sneak peek before the party.”
Now that is too darn cute.
Yep, heart day is coming! And here at Coco Cake Land I’ll be slamming out some seriously cute and heart-y cake tutorials! If you love hearts, you’re in luck – if you hate hearts, I hope you don’t barf too much over all the love that’ll be flowing round these parts soon!
Happy Friday, cake friends.
LOVE, Lyndsay ^__^
