What you'll need:

  • Vanilla pound cake
  • Chocolate pound cake
  • 2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter
  • Chocolate frosting
  • Vanilla frosting
  • Offset spatula
  • Pink edible glitter
  • Pink sprinkle pearls


  1. Slice off the domed top of the pound cakes to level them, then slice each loaf in half lengthwise through the middle to create two 3/4- to 1-inch-thick planks.
  2. Use a 2-inch heart cookie cutter to cut out pound cake hearts. You should be able to cut about 12 hearts from each flavor of pound cake. Freeze on a baking sheet for 1 hour.
  3. Add the chocolate and vanilla frosting to separate microwave-safe bowls and microwave for 15 to 25 seconds; stir to achieve a smooth consistency.
  4. Place a pound cake heart on an offset spatula and use a spoon to coat the heart completely with the frosting. Carefully transfer to a wire rack. Repeat with the remaining hearts and frosting.
  5. Decorate the tops of the petit fours with edible glitter and pink sprinkle pearls.
  6. Allow to harden completely before serving or packaging for a gift.
