DIY Felt Food – Chocolate Heart Cake

14 Jun

Embracing this months cottage cozy theme I knew if I was going to make a felt cake it would need to be chocolate and it would need to be a heart shape. A little felt cake that would be simple to make but would look right at home in a play picnic basket or tea party.

I experimented with adding some DIY felt roses as an added accent to this felt food cake pattern but it just lacked the simple rustic feel I was hoping for. I love the look of the felt daises against this fun felt dessert. If you are wondering how to make a felt heart cake, it really is surprisingly easy. Below you will find a tutorial for a simple heart shaped cake tutorial dripping with a dark chocolate felt “ganache” and accented with DIY felt daisies.

You will need:

9″ x 6″ felt cake color I used Brownie

9″ x 12″ felt icing color I used Chocolate

Stuffing, scraps or foam to fill heart cake

Free pattern to make felt heart cake:

Felt daises – full tutorial Here

Cut:

2 Cake sides from light brown felt

2 icing sides from icing color, top and bottom from icing felt

(you can create a bottom from light brown if accuracy is important to you)

Sew daisies to felt cake top, you can also glue these down with got glue if desired.

Sew icing drips to both sides of cake with matching thread and a running stitch.

Place cake sides outsides facing and sew sides together. This meeting point will the the dip at the top of the heart.

Sew the top to the side with and overcast stitch and matching thread.

Sew bottom the felt heart cake the same way as the top. Add filling, stuffing or foam before closing to help it hold structure. If you find it too lumpy try reinforcing the sides with a bit of thin cardboard (like a cereal box) before stuffing.
