Donsuemor’s Hugs and Kisses Cute Cakes

Ingredients

½ cup unsalted butter (“Mom” prefers organic)

2 tablespoons water

1 cup powdered sugar

12 Donsuemor Cute Cakes – 6 vanilla and 6 chocolate

One package Red Licorice Laces

Preparation

In a small saucepan, melt the butter and water together over medium heat. Remove from the heat and allow the mixture to cool slightly. Add the powdered sugar, whisking vigorously until smooth and thickened, about two minutes.

Allow the icing to stand and thicken until it is a spreadable consistency. With an icing spatula, spread icing on the top of each cute cake. Using a scissors, cut the licorice laces to create 6 X’s and 6 O’s. Place each on one of the cute cakes. Serve.

Cupid Cute Cakes

A variation of the recipe above can be to top each cute cake with a chocolate heart standing in the frosting to create Cupid Cakes.
