Cookie Cake: Swedish Heart

I'm still in the mindset of trying very hard not to bring anything into our home so when I saw this heart shaped pan at Target (it was on an end cap) I was torn.  Then I saw Pillsbury had a Valentine's edition Easy Frost and the next thing you knew I was checking out with this stuff:

I thought, at least I'll be making a Valentine's treat that cannot be saved for months in a wrapper and I could possibly share a cake design on this blog!  So, here we go with the Swedish Heart.  Traditionally, this is a Christmas symbol/craft, hung on the tree and filled with sweets:
CHD: Swedish Woven Heart Baskets
But I thought it'd be perfect for a Valentine's Day symbol as well!  So first I baked the cookie cake with these instructions from Pillsbury (one exception, I found I had to lightly grease my Nordic Ware pan with butter).  Then I sketched out the heart and used bamboo skewers as a guide:

Next, I filled the spaces with lines of light colored Easy Frost pink first:

Then removed the skewers:

And drew lines in the opposite direction with the darker Easy Frost chocolate (I could cover up pink mistakes with chocolate) last:

It was a piece of cake and I can't wait to make another one!

Make one for your Valentines and the treat will be gone, lick-ety split!

Did I mention this is EASY?  It is beyond EASY!
