Yum! I think I'm going to try to make heart shaped ones for our Valentine's preschool. Do I need to practice in advance or do you think we'll be able to get it right the first try?

They seemed pretty simple when we did it. I think you can do it the first time without too much trouble! Let me know hot the heart shape turns out!
