Place the pans in the oven to bake for 20-25 min! Make sure it’s baked by inserting a toothpick.

Take out the oven and let cool, then trim the edges as shown in the picture.

Place one cake on a heart-shaped piece of cardboard and cut 6-inch hearts out of two of the other cake layers.

Mix frosting and whipped topping together then use a zip top or piping bag to spread the frosting around the edges of the cake layers.

Now hide your strawberries in the heart-shaped hole. Then you have to attach the final layer with some frosting in the middle.

Frost your cake before you cover it with red fondant. After you cover the whole cake with red fondant now it’s time to make some green leaves.
