Heart Shaped Cake for Valentine's Day

Wednesday, February 5, 2014

I didn't mean to take such a long break.  Things have been busy here.  I made this heart shaped cake last week to share with all of you in hopes that you would want to make one for your family for Valentine's Day...


It's not a fancy cake.  I used a boxed cake mix and store bought icing, but it came out pretty cute and both my kids loved it.  


To bake the cake, you need two different sized pans...a round cake pan and a square cake pan.  Bake the cake according to the directions on the box or use your favorite recipe.  I used chocolate because that's what my kids love...



Turn the square cake on a diagonal and cut the round cake in half...


As you fit the pieces together, you may have to trim some of the round cake.  I had to trim one half of the round cake to make an even line with the square cake...


Use your favorite icing and decorate...


Such a fun way to show your family your love for 
Valentine's Day!

  8. I remember when this was the way to make a heart cake. Not a new silicone heart pan, or any heart pan. Guess I'm getting old. I think this says more to the recipient than an easiest way to go heart cake. A little more effort is required, just as it is in love. Thanks for sharing. Glad I came over from artsy-fartsy party.
