  • cake
  • red buttercream
  • extra powdered sugar
  • spaghetti noodles
  • edible gold dust


  • Frost your cake with your deep red buttercream
  • Create your sculpting buttercream by mixing a few tablespoons of buttercream with extra powdered sugar until you get the consistency that you prefer. (This is an optional step.)
  • Trace an outline of the broken heart onto the front of the cake.
  • Begin adding the sculpting buttercream inside of the broken heart shape that you traced. You will build this up by periodically chilling the cake in the freezer for 2-5 minutes, then adding more buttercream until you get the desired shape.
  • Once you have the desired shape, use your clean fingers to smooth out the buttercream and use a toothpick to add details or sharpen edges to acheive the broken heart look that you want.
  • Break off small pieces of spaghetti noodles and insert them between the two broken heart pieces.
  • Paint the spaghetti noodle pieces with edible gold dust.
