YOU’LL NEED

Use your favorite tart crust recipe
Buttercream icing
Petite cookies (for decoration)
Assorted candies & sprinkles
Piping bag & decorating tips
#1 stencil (to cut out cake shape)

DIRECTIONS

1.Roll out the crust on a sheet of parchment paper, this will make it much easier to transfer it to a cookie sheet.

2.Lay the stencil on top of the dough and using a sharp knife, carefully cut out a number one. Remember, you will need two of these when you are done.

3.Make sure you let your tart crust cool completely before adding any icing (otherwise it will all melt off).

4.Using a piping bag with decorating tip, pipe large florets onto the top of one of your number ones.

5.Letting the icing dry for a while before placing the second number one on top will keep it from getting crushed

6.Once your tart sandwich” is made, add another layer of decorative piped florets to the top of your cake

7.Decorate your cake with assorted candies, sprinkles & cookies.
