I need an idea into making a cake that is not a heart for valentines.
It need to be something different for a valentinesday party.
All ideas are welcome.

It's not a cake exactly but I saw this on Oprah

It was for New Years but it could work for Valentine's too! If that doesn't work maybe it will spark an idea!!! Hope that helps!

Something with Cupid?
Just a regular cake but put colouring in the mix to make it red? Obviously red velvet is "naturally" red...

Sorry if thats no help!

It's hard not to do hearts but represent Valentine's day but you could make something frilly like a regular round cake with fondant ruffles or fondant roses or rose petals... I am making a small two tier cake for my BF that is going to have two kissing giraffes on top (I know that probably won't work for party but it may spark an idea) HTH

I'm going to make the giant cupcake (pan not expensive with 40% off coupon at AC Moore or Michaels), red velvet, white whipped buttercream frosting and little candy hearts for the "spinkles"

I like the idea of the giant cupcake but you can just do valentine's day colors and not the hearts...that will still give you that vibe. Just be sure to use a lot of pinks because I did red and white this week for cake pops and they looked like Xmasicon_sad.gif I needed more pink to bring out the Valentines day vibe.

I agree-- I really think it's all about the pinks! Light pink and white work really well together . Vibrant pinks are great too. I plan on playing around with these colors this weekend.

Somewhere in the gallery there is a cake I remember that used fondant in the colors of the conversation heart candies and with the sayings all sort of blended together to cover a cake. I'm not describing it very well, but search the gallery for valentine and you'll get lots of ideas and maybe find the one I'm trying to describe....

I am doing a valentines day cake for the kids at daycare and I'm making it spongebob. He, Patrick and Gary are giving each other valentines and then all the kids will have a valentine on the cake with their name on it. Maybe you could do a square cake that is decorated like a valentines card??
