DIY Valentine Cake Garland

Valentine's Day is quickly approaching and nothing says "I love you" more than a handmade dessert and a little DIY action!  It's funny, I didn't think of it until now, but the cake below is a perfect representation of Jeff and I as a couple.  He's the classic cake, handsome, reliable and consistent.  I'm the silly garland with lots of color and mood.  Together we make a beautiful couple!

This was such a fun project!  It took a little time, but it turned out so cute.  Here's how to make your own Valentine Cake Garland using Airheads Candy.
  1. Supplies: Airheads  (I used white mystery, cherry and pink lemonade), wax paper, x-acto knife, bakers twine, scissors, tape and two stripey straws.
  2. Cut the airheads into triangles using the scissors.
  3. Using the x-acto knife, cut out the letters for your message and poke holes in either side of each triangle (holes don't have to look perfect, the twine will hide imperfections).
  4. Wrap a small piece of tape around the end of the twine and thread through the triangles.
  5. Cut twine to desired length and tie either end to a straw.
  6. When placing on cake, be sure to angle the straws for a nice drape. 
I entered this project into the Craft Your Valentine Contest, so if you'd take a second to click over and vote for me, that would be great!  Happy Valentine's Day!
