When I was a child my mom would always make a heart shaped cake for Valentine's Day. The reason we thought it was so cool was that fact that my mom didn't own one of those fancy heart shaped pans.
It wasn't until I was older I realized her secret. To create this shape she used 2 cakes, a 8"round pan and a 8"square. Only one regular size cake mix is needed. Once the cakes are baked, cooled, and out of the pan, cut the round cake in half. Place the cake pieces as shown in the picture . Better Recipes has a Full Tutorial and Frosting Recipe here!
Happy Valentine's Day!
