Ahh, conversation hearts. As a kid, there was nothing quite like sneaking one across the desk to your crush. Now, as a parent, you can create a (much) tastier version with your kids at home. Confetti Cakes, a mom-owned cake company, has just launched its first at-home cake kit, and yup, it’s in the form of a giant conversation heart! If this gives you the warm fuzzies, keep reading to find out how to get one in time for Valentine’s Day.

What It Is

This brand-new baking kit is designed by Elisa Strauss, the pastry chef behind Confetti Cakes. While she’s been making cakes for over 20 years and is the author of two cookbooks, this is her very first baking kit. Elisa says, “Creating a baking kit has been a dream of mine for over a decade! I love teaching, and I want people to feel that they can create amazing cakes at home. Also, being a mom of 3 young kids, I see how wonderful it is to have a fun project to do—especially around sweets. The most important thing in childhood is to make memories. I hope I am helping people to do that whether they are 6 yrs or 106!”

The conversation heart kit is the only one available now, but Strauss plans on extending the selection. For example, there's a kit for Mother’s Day in the works. If you’re worried about procuring fancy cake-baking ingredients, don’t be. You’ll get almost everything you need to make the giant conversation hearts: vanilla or chocolate cake mix, buttercream frosting mix, stencils, cake molds, fondant and more. You just need to provide the eggs, milk, oil and butter! 

How Do You Get One? 

If you want the kit to be delivered before Feb. 14, be sure to place your order by Feb. 7. Each kit is $65, and there’s an option to send one as a gift, which is perfect if you aren’t able to see your loved ones. 

Order one here.
