Heart Cake – Valentine’s Day

Little Wren Surprise Inside Valentine's Cake

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I originally saw the idea for the surprise inside cake here and had to try it!Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

It didn’t go quite according to plan, but luckily it turned out in the end. The main problem was I used a regular cake recipe when I should have used a pound cake recipe. So use a pound cake recipe.

Basically you make two cakes. They can be different kinds or you can dye one and not the other (which is what I did).

First, you bake the one that is going to be the shape inside the cake. Once it’s baked and cooled (you can put it in the fridge), you cut it up in to thick slices and then cut the shapes out with a cookie cutter.

Then prepare the batter for the second cake. Put the cut out shapes in the bottom of a second pan – I put a bit of  batter on the bottom first so the hearts wouldn’t tip over – and then cover them completely with the batter for the outside cake. Bake as usual, though I would recommend checking to see if it’s done often from about 30 minutes onward.

I’m excited to try it again! (with the proper type of recipe for the type of pan I used this time) It would be great with an bunny shape for Easter or an initial for a child’s birthday.
