3D Chocolate Heart Cake

You don’t have to be a pro cake maker to create a bakery-style cake for your sweetheart. You won’t have to spend all day it the kitchen or fuss with layers and layers of crumbly cake, either. The Sweet Creations Valentines Day 3D Heart Shaped Cake Pan makes it easy to create a masterpiece in minutes. 




A heavy duty pan, coated in easy-release nonstick, this adorable cake mold bakes a heart-shaped cake, complete with ready-to-decorate designs. We recommend using the recipe below, then making a double batch of Our Favorite Buttercream, tinting portions into pretty colors and piping on fun designs with the Sweet Creations 11-piece Decorating Kit.

This delicious cake is made even more adorable when baked in a Sweet Creations Heart Shaped Cake Pan. The batter can also be cooked in to 9" cake pans (baking time for 9" cake pans will be 22-25 minutes). If you don't have buttermilk, feel free to add 1/2 cup of sour cream and 1 cup of milk to your cake mix.

    I like the look of this. They look like small tiny roses and yet I know you didn’t pipe small individual roses. What tip did you use to pipe the flowers? If you can remember it will save me all that trial and error finding which one it is. What’s nice is even though this is suppose to be a more Valentine treat if colors are changed it can really be used for all sorts of holidays and events.
