With an electric mixer, blend together cream cheese and butter until smooth. Turn mixer to low speed and blend in powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Turn mixer on high and beat until light and fluffy. Stir in chopped walnuts and use immediately or refrigerate, covered, until ready to use. If refrigerated, the frosting will need to be brought to room temperature before using (after frosting softens up, beat with mixer until smooth).
I omitted the walnuts in the icing because of the look I was aiming for. Made the roses to go on top from rolled fondant. It was my first attempt on making these roses. Still need a lot of practice before I can get then right.
Heart shaped cake bites
I used some of the cake mixture for these heart shaped cake bites. I think it makes it easier for kids to eat. I was planning to send these out to Kabir's daycare. But on the pretext of tasting, Kabir and Rohit ate enough to mess up my count. I didn't have enough left for the kids at daycare, so I guess they will be eating the rest as well.
Instead, I got dinosaur fruit snack for the kids and packed it in these paper cones. I got the idea of paper cones from the this site.
