Prepare your cake

Bake and fill your favorite cake.
A Sacher cake, non-dairy chocolate cake or a chocolate chip brownie cake might be just the right thing for us chocoholics. Of course any other cake will work as well, just bake it in a heart-shaped pan.

Cover your heart-shaped cake in chocolate sugarpaste or chocolate marzipan.

Measure and divide the sides of the cake into eight using a tape measure. Mark using the end of the plastic frilling stick or a small knife.
On a icing sugar dusted surface, roll out a small amount of ivory colored sugarpaste, until it is thin enough for the Garret frill cutter.
Cut out a Garret frill using your cutter. You may cut out several at a time and cover them with plastic wrap to prevent them from drying out.
A little dusting of powder sugar will prevent the frill from sticking to the work surface.
