I used the standard chocolate sheet cake plus 1/2 cup of frosting recipe. Rather than make it easy the first time and do balls I had the idea stuck in my head that I wanted to do flowers and Valentine colors. I meant to pick up pink and white but got colorburst brights instead.
Rolled the cake mixture out and cut out flowers. I then stuck the stick in them and placed them in the freezer.
Now the fun begins. If your daughter, who while I am typing this is currently dipping fruit at Edible Arrangements, tells you this step is not easy, listen. I used the melts and melted at 30 second intervals at 50% power in the microwave. I only had to reheat once, I think. Took a little while but I got the hang of it. The melts harden much faster than chocolate and far less forgiving.
I think they turned out cute and they taste great but I would definitely need to practice more before I attempted a party or birthday.
