This Valentine’s day DIY idea is for Valentine’s day cake parfaits! YUM! What a great idea! This would be a delicious little treat for your Valentine’s Day party, or as a dessert for your Valentine’s day dinner, especially if you’re making a homemade dinner. :d
These may sound tricky, but they’re really not difficult at all. Here’s what you’ll need:
cake mix ( I went with Pillsbury Pink Lemonade flavor)
ingredients for your cake mix (*Note: Instead of the recommended 3 eggs, I used 4 eggs; instead of water, I used milk; and instead of 1/3 c of oil, I melted a full stick of butter–You would not believe how much fluffier the cake batter comes out! Give it a try!)
glasses/cups about 6-8
circular cookie cutter
can of frosting and preferred toppings
large ziploc bag
cake frosting tip (find in your baking isle at the grocery store or craft store)
Ok, so first thing’s first-mix the cake batter and spread into 2 cake pans. (I used 8×8 pans).
Bake your cakes. When they are done, let them cool for about 20 minutes. While waiting, using a spatula, scoop the frosting into a large ziploc baggie (make sure you clip the corner and put the frosting tip in first) This will make it easier to get the frosting into the cup/glass.
Flip your cakes onto two plates, and using the circular cookie cutter, cut circles out of your cakes. Put one cake circle into a cup, and then squeeze a layer of frosting. Then another cake circle, and another layer of frosting. Sprinkle your toppings on the top layer of frosting on your cake parfait and you’re ready to enjoy! :d
Enjoy your cake parfaits!
