To see a picture :

What you need:

* 1 (16 oz.) frozen pound cake, thawed
* 1 can (16 oz.) prepared vanilla frosting
* Red food coloring
* 1 tube chocolate decorative frosting, with plain tip
* 1 bag (14 oz.) M&M'S(r) Brand Milk Chocolate Candies for
Valentine's Day
* Wire cooling rack
* Waxed paper
* 2- to 2-1/4-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter
* Glass measuring cup

What to do:
1. Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper and top with a
wire cooling rack; set aside. Cut pound cake lengthwise
into 9 slices, each about 1 inch thick. Using the heart-shaped
cookie cutter, cut out 2 heart shapes per cake slice. (Save
trimmings for another use, such as trifles, rum balls, or
snacking.) Place the heart-shaped cake pieces on top of the
wire cooling rack.
2. Spoon 1/4 cup of the vanilla frosting into a resealable
plastic bag and set aside. Using the red food coloring, tint
the remaining frosting a light pink, and spoon it into a glass
measuring cup. Heat the pink frosting in the microwave for 5
to 10 seconds, or until pourable. DO NOT OVERHEAT. Pour the
pink frosting over the heart-shaped cake pieces, to cover both
the tops and the sides, reusing the drippings and reheating if
necessary. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes.
3. Using scissors, snip a small corner from the resealable
plastic bag filled with the white frosting, and use it to pipe
designs on the tops and sides of the heart-shaped cake pieces.
Attach M&M'S(r) Brand Milk Chocolate Candies for Valentine's Day
in different designs, then pipe messages on the tops with the
decorative chocolate frosting.

Makes 18 cakes
